I know this is a betta site.

but my betta died a while back so i got two popeyed goldfish from walmart. one died of ick two days after i got it and so i put the other goldfish in a one gallon tank {they were originally in a 10 gallon together}...will this be enough to stop ick from spreading to the other fish or do i need to still get some medicine.

To treat ich, most people raise the temperature to 82-84 degrees (if the fish in question can stand high temps) add a teaspoon of salt per gallon, and an ich medicine like coppersafe or aquarisol.

Is anyone going to mention that gold fish shouldn't be kept in one gallon bowls? Or kept with warm water fish?

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

they were in a 10 gallon to begin with. i didnt have enough water to change the 10 gallon so i put them in a one gallon for now.
when i get more water theyll be put back in the 10 gallon.
