The one's I have, has as 2 named active ing Malachite Green and Formalin in it, since I have no store here, I bought mine at Walmart called QuIck Cure
I diealed up the Temp 4 days ago slowly, then started adding acc to instructions and all spots are almost all gone now (sure in a few days its all gone).
Your Petco or Petsmart will have the stuff, maybe not the same brand but they'll have something against Ick I'm very very sure about that, so just drive out & get some, meanwhile start dialing up the Temp.

If you are following the method I use, you can add all of the salt at one time. No more salt needs to be added, unless you do a PWC. Only add the salt that was removed during the water change. If you replaced 10 gallons of water, you will need to replace 2 tablespoons salt.

Table salt is fine. The iodine or additives are a non-issue despite the popular myth against using salt containing such.

From what I learned so far (and pls someone correct me if wrong, cause I'm totally new to the sickness matter) you're supposed to keep treatment up for 5 days AFTER visible signs on the fish are all gone.

I'm happy its working for you too, watch in a few days they'll be spot free like mine

I hope so, from whati saw i checked the mollys first since their black and well white spots are easy to see, the spots are going away, my one fish who had it really bad mabey has like 1 or 2 little spots left so im excited about that. Treatment is still being continues i think another 2 days of slowly raising the temp, then ill stabalize it for another 3 -5 days should kill the ich completly. Than after ill start lowering the temperature back down slowly to 78
