Two Items

1) IMHO the symptoms which you are observing are not Ich.

2a) Dose with Melafix as indicated on the directions.

2b) I you have activated carbon in you filtration process remove it before dosing with Melafix.

ok did a quick serch on melafix i see it derives from melaluca oil. i happen to have some of that stuff actually a lot pure melaluca oil can i drip some of that in the tank instead. i understand that it is all natural but potent stuff i might try one drop. will it hurt my fish, shrimp, frog combo?

External problems.

If the Melafix does not improve the condition in two days other folks will need to provide input as to other potential remedies.

No I do not unfortunately.

I had an angel get stuck in a rock hole and in extricating him he lost some scales, fins and skin.

Some gurus said to try Melafix before trying anything else which I did.

A few eruptions appeared on his skin but went away in several days and he completely healed in about two weeks (I dosed with Melafix for one week).

(BTW this is the only medication which I have used in my one year of fish keeping so I am of no help beyond this point).

It shouldn't but don't try overdosing it.

thanx guys im going to put one drop in the 10 gallons and see what happens. ill also try to contact my melaluca lady to ask her if she knows anything. i know she uses it for her dogs ear infections. this stuff works wonders and is all natural you should look into it yourselves.
