Tell me about it I suspect that I killed one of my goldfish with Melafix this morning :( I like to think that he went peacefully in his sleep. Normally I don't get attached to my fish but the larger guys are easy to notice a personality in.

I'm really sorry you lost your goldfish, Kelly. Also sorry to hear about your fish loss too, sbetsy. These things happen and we always feel bad about it. I know we all do our best so we can't beat ourselves up about it. I hope the remainder of the treatment goes well and keep us up to date.

Well last night was the last day of treatment and I'm terrified to look in the loach house to see if I still have a little friend in there. Lost a danio (I couldn't believe it) yesterday afternoon. Yesterday I did a 25% change in the AM and a 50% change in the evening before I dosed the tank. I did testing yesterday and things looked even better than before (no nitrites, even lower nitrates) so I'm sure it's the meds. Sigh....

Ouch... I've never had any personal experience with Kordon Ich meds. I wonder if they're just really harsh... I have used Coppersafe by Mardel in the past (not for ich) and it didn't harm any of the fish!

Well, we lost the loaches. And a raspora. It's really sad. I learned my lesson about the quarantine tank for sure. No visible ich on anybody. Anybody left in the tank that is...

Talk about ick, it's the worst nightmare for every aquarium owner. So far, I have never heard about the chemical solution mentioned but if I were you, I would just follow exactly the directions as specified. There are some advice which I randomly came across while doing researching (like this) but generally most advice would say that salt treatment is sufficient.

Neons would be the most vulnerable and if you have an extra tank, it's best to separate them. Usually if I perform treatment using chemicals, I would turn off filters just to ensure that the medication doesn't get removed. Create aeration by using air pump. For the ornaments, there is nothing wrong to rewash but I would avoid using bleach in case that might contaminate and carry over to fish tank.
