I'm sorry, I'd HATE to lose my favorite fish.
In the future, if you have to treat for ich, you're better off going with meds, when you have scaleless fish in the tank. I keep loaches and otos (in addition to many others) and when I've had to treat for ich (twice, so far) I've used Kordon's Rid-Ich+, at just 1/2 strength. 1/2 strength is what's recommended for scaleless and sensitive fish and it has never failed to rid the tank of ich. I do not use salt, nor do I mess with the temp.
Even if I didn't have scaleless fish this is how I'd treat the tank since it has worked both times for me without any fish casualties. Sorry you lost your BGK.
