Ich Meds for BN Plecos?

Hello All, apparently my 29 gallon has an Ick Attack. I don't see the point of the form since I don't need a Diagnosis, but if necisary I will. My question, what's a good Medication that's safe for Bristlenosed Plecos? Thanks!

I used Ick Guard by Tetra with a bristlenose and featherfins with no bad effects. Even at full dose it didn't seem to harm them and sure did get rid of the ich. This is just from my own experience though, I don't know a whole lot about medications but from the experience I had with it I would feel safe using it again with catfish. When I was searching for an ich medication it seemed to be one of the safer medications to use as it doesn't contain copper.

Its important to know water parameters before dosing with any medication. Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and pH all make a difference. Its also important to know what other fish are in the tank before selecting a medication unless the infected fish is being treated in a quarantine tank. When it comes to ich, it can be assumed that the entire tank is infected, so all the more reason to know what other fish are in there. Not all medications are safe for all species of fish.

If you list the tank size, other inhabitants in the tank, whether there are live plants or not, water temp, and water parameters for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and pH I would be more than happy to help you.
