Ich Meds for Loaches

Can anyone weigh in on what they think are the best medications to be used for treating Ich in regards to loaches, catfish and plecos? I'm particulary interested in reponses in regards to successful outcomes based on actual experience in medicating these types of fish. I apologize in advance for being so picky! Any and all responses will be much appreciated!

Any of the ick meds AT HALF DOSES should be OK but there are also meds out there now especially for scaleless fish. Ick Quard II is one of them. I treated mine for Ick with the salt treatment.

I'm no longer seeing any visible symptoms in the tank so for now I'll assume all is well. I started with the salt/heat treatment but after two weeks was still seeing spots on the clowns and broke down and dosed with meds one time but kept the tank at 84 until 48 hours after the last white spot was seen. If I have a future outbreak it's nice to know that Ick Guard II is a medication safely used. Thank you so much for the info!!

Table salt whether it has iodine or not. It's a common mistake for many people to simply dump the salt straight to the tank. I use a tablespoon per 5g dose, dissolve thoroughly and add gradually on time intervals.
