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.
