Best Ich medication?
<sigh> new arrivals (Black Veil Angels) look like they have a couple of tiny "grains of salt" on them....
Rather than hijack someone elses thread (I almost did) I'll start a new one and ask:
1) Which, in your opinion, is the best Ich medication?
2) We should remove carbon from the filtration yes or no?
API is one of the companies I trust the most as far as my fish medicines go. I would try Their Ich liquid formula, just because it works faster. You can probably buy this at your LFS . I've seen it at Walmart, too. Super Ick Cure? Liquid - API
i am unsure about the best ich treatment, as i have been lucky so far, and havent had to face this. But i would remove any carbon from the system when treating with any meds..
Coppersafe is the brand I have heard the most about people using for Ich.
If you have fake plants, then you're A-OK and go get it. :)
All my plants are live so I'll stay away from the Coppersafe...thanks for the heads-up on that one.
OK - off to the LFS tomorrow to see what they have. They carry a lot of the API product line so I gotta imagine the'll have the Ich medication.
No problem :) Good luck with your fishies. Hope they get better real soon!
I've always used Kordons Rid Ich+. I also have planted tanks and the Kordons has never harmed my plants.
Byron recommends Aquarisol but I can't find it here where I live.
I've used Coppersafe in my planted tanks and had no problems. There may be some copper-sensitive plants, but my swords don't seem to be bothered by copper at all! Definitely remove the carbon. Coppersafe may have a negative impact on your biological filter, so be careful with the feeding and watch the water quality carefully if you use it.
Good stuff...thanks everybody.
I've cut open (a small slot in the top back side) of a new filter cartrige for my Whisper and dumped out as much carbon chips as possible. I'll give it another shake before I chage out the filter cartridge and start medicating.
Just fyi, the Ich isn't bad at all right now, catching it very early but this is the sorta thing that just doesn't go away on it's own so off the the LFS tomorrow morning and pick-up some meds.
