Hi there...I have ich on my pleco and a few of my neons. I've read that salt was not good for neons or loaches (I have a kulii). I'm not sure what to treat with with the large variety of meds available at the LFS. I was hoping I could treat w/ temperature alone but not sure if my fish would tolerate, so I was hoping to ask the experts here.
How high can I go w/ temp with the fish I have?
If this doesn't work, what medications are best for my fish, since it appears salt is out of the question (or is it?)
I've already lowered the water level to increase oxygenation from filter.
Tank size: 29gal
Temp: currently 80 F (increased from 78 yesterday afternoon).
Nitrates: 5-10 ppm
2 dwarf gouramis
1 Common Pleco
1 kuhlii loach
Tank has been running for about 3 months. The loach is the newest; I added him about a week ago. I did not QT, guess I will be getting a 10gal for that purpose for the future.
Edited to add: Forgot to mention it is planted, there are about 6 live plants in as well if this makes a difference.
