I have read a few different theories in the forums and I would just like to clarify whats best.
Everyone seems to be in agreement that increasing the water temp to + 81 - 82 degrees is a must.
Some people swear blind that salt is the way to go, that being the case is aquarium salt better than table salt? When dissolving the salt should it be added to hot water? There is also the tolerance levels of the fish for both temp and salt, how do I find out tolerance levels for each fish?
Next there's the shop bought medications. A lot of people suggest using half dosage, should this then be used for twice as long as recommended? Can I use the medications along with the salt or as an alternative?
When using medication and or salt should water changes be reduced to keep the treatment in the tank or increased to remove the Ich from the tank?
Does lighting or feeding have any part to play in the treatment?
I am really only looking to gain knowledge here, not to treat an ongoing problem
As for the tolerance levels, the fish I currently have are -
and 1 platy
Thanks guys Kenster
