Just heat! Featherfins are VERY resilient. I love mine too so I understand the concern. Heat is less stressful and more effective then any meds. I just had my clown loach in my 75community go throug that. Put the whole community through 1 1/2 weeks of 86-87f temps and all is good. Everyone took it well and it honeslty was off the loach in about 2-4 days but kept the heat to be safe. I would do the same if it were my featherfin..but I would putting the cat in QT just because his tank mates are a little more important to me.

was just saying what I would do because that is avaiable to me..but even then to be safe I woud heat the main tank as well to be safe. Don't worry. They will all be fine. I did not qt my loach. He is super social and didn't wnt him more stressed seeing as stress caused his ich in the first place. ( I forgot to plug heater back in after water change for 24hrs and tank chilled too much). Keep us updated

+1 to all the above advice. They got ya covered :) just wanted to mention that just about any meds you would be tempted to use would be very harmful and most likely deadly to ur snails.

Welcome to fishkeeping. Im pretty sure soon u will habe mts ( multiple tank syndrom) just like the rest of us!

Ok so quick update, did the wc and vacuum last night everything seemed ok. Woke up early this morning to a lost bala and now my featherfin looks like he is peeling but still acting pretty much normal. And as far as MTS goes already got it ! Looking into a 75 gal but debating on a salt or fresh water setup. This time I'm going to take my time and really do research before any purchases. But I really want some angels too so maybe a third tank too lol

Peeling didn't sound good... Not a symptom of ich so it's possible there's more going on.
