I will be getting Kordon Ich Attack asap tomorrow! This will be good for both my tanks because the Zebras that are in my planted tank came from the infected tank, and this seems to be more safe for plants and tetras too.
Your welcome and keep us posted on your progress.

Alright so I went out and bought the Ich Attack, cleaned the 75g pretty damn good! Vacuumed the whole gravel and removed my carbon, did about 50-60% water change just now. The temperature is also raised currently at 27 Celsius.

I put about 7.5 teaspoons of ich attack in and so far so good. I also put 2.5 teaspoons in my 29g planted tank which has 2 zebra danios that came from the other tank. I noticed a little white dot on one of the danios so I thought I would do this tank as well. It doesn't have any carbon in the filter anyway so I just added ich attack without doing any cleaning or preparing.

The one thing to keep in mind... you continue to dose meds for THREE entire days AFTER the last visible white spot has been seen. Good luck, keep us posted!

So this has been taking forever! I still see white spots on some of the tetras it does seem to have 'slowed down' but I doubled the dosage starting today so hopefully that will speed things up.

How long does this usually take?

Yikes! Doubling the dosage could be deadly for your fish. Patience, grasshopper. It took me tank three weeks (meds at half strength) to be rid of Ich. It's only been five days since you purchased meds. As my mom is so fond of saying, "Rome wasn't built in a day".

The stuff I bought is the organic one, and it says that its very safe so doubling the dosage apparently won't hurt the fish.

Look up Kordon's Ich Attack thats the stuff I have

Taken directly from Kordon's site:

Kordon LLC - Kordon - Ich Attack

"NUMBER OF DAYS NEEDED FOR DAILY TREATMENT
This depends upon the kind of infection, its strength, whether multiple infections are involved, etc. If Ich-Attack is being used as a preventative and against mild infection, it can be that single daily treatments are needed for a week. If the infection is more serious, and multiple, daily treatments as described above are needed for several weeks -- daily treatments as described above may be needed for a month or more."

Note that they say several weeks (sometimes even more than a month) may be needed. Either way, if it was me (and it's not) and when keeping sensitive fish (which neons and otos are) I would stick to half strength dosage and just wait it out.

This is also from there:

Regarding the toxicity of Kordon Ich-Attack to fishes and aquatic invertebrates -- it is not toxic to them. It may be that fishes and aquatic invertebrates die during treatment but numerous repeated experiments at more than ten times dosages of Ich-Attack have shown that the causes of their deaths are not the Ich-Attack treatment, nor does it contribute to the causes of deaths. What has caused the deaths besides the infecting diseases, that are too far advanced to be cured by treatment, needs to be determined by the keeper.

I started the double dosage last night at 12:00 and this morning again at 12:00 so I don't know should I continue with the double dosage? So dose again at 12:00 tonight or just wait till tomorrow morning at 12:00? The fish seem to be OK nothing has died yet. It also says to do it twice a day if infections reoccur and that has been happening I've been getting new spots on the tetras almost everyday .

So I just ran out of this crap and ich is still very present.. I went to look for more of this "Ich-Attack" at the pet store but they ran out... looks like I'm gonna have to go with another medication.
My temperature is currently at 30 degrees Celsius and has been for a while now.
This is really starting to annoy me
