I can't get rid of this ICH. PLEASE HELP!
I have a 20 gallon tank that includes 2 mollies, 1 tiger barb, 1 glass fish, 1 blue dwarf gourami, and 1 pleco. My tank has been infested with ICH for a little over a week now. First I raised the temp and put salt in. I let it sit for a few days and it didn't seem to get any better. So I bought a book on freshwater fish problems and it said to transfer them to another tank and clean out the infested tank. So I did. Three days later, I moved them back into the original tank and I also added some ICH medication. And I still haven't seen any improvement. Yesterday, I added more salt and turned the temp up again to about 85 F. When I last checked my PH was 7.2, ammonia 0, nitrate 0, and nitrite 0. I don't know what else to do but wait. Now it seems as though my black dalmation mollie has brownish bronze patches on him! I feel like I've tried everything and I'm getting no where. Any advise would be nice. Thank you.
