I read that raising the tank temp cures most of the problem but my Heater does not have a adjustable thermostat. Its just programmed to stay at 78. I really don't want to nuke my tank with ick remover as i have read that it can harm your fish and water quality. What do i do at this stage? Daily water changes? Thanks.
Get an adjustable heater and set temp to 88 for 14 days.
