I kinda figured there was a good reason for the method your doing. I just wanted to also share what I had learned from my run-in with Ich. For all I know I was lucky with how easily it went away, and for all I know I may not be done with it yet! I did know that raising the temp speeds the life cycle. Just also wanted to point out that it adds additional stress to some species of fish even further weakening their immune system. I read everything I could to try and save my fish when they got it. Theres many different methods of getting ridding of it/speeding up the process however not all are safe for all species. I lost two fish with my Ich outbreak that could have possibly been prevented had I properly quarantined!
