I've not used this myself, and just now I did a search online and got such divergent opinions I wouldn't want to say yea or nay. Perhaps other members have used it and can comment.
Corys are particularly sensitive to chemicals and salt, and there is copper in most ich medications which is why they recommend half dose for sensitive and scaleless fish. I've used Aquari-Sol with my very sensitive characins (pencilfish) and corydoras without any loss, although they clearly do not particularly like it. I never raise the temp, and the ich is gone within a few days. Treatment has to be maintained for several days due to the nature of the ich cycle, and the comment on the Jungle website that one treatment works makes me wonder.
