HELP!!!! I have a 48 gallon tank. I have a total of 5 goldfish in it. Last week I added the last 2 goldfish. On Saturday I noticed the tell-tale sign of ICH - white spots on the fins (only on the two most recent goldfish I added to the tank).
Saturday night, the water was treated with the Jungle brand ICH CLEAR (which has worked in the past with other types of fish I have had). However, there were no signs that the ICH was clearing.... it actually got worse into Sunday. Directions said to do 25% water change and re-dose the water with the ICH tablets again if no improvement w/in 24 hrs. Water was retreated again last night. Still no signs of improvement.
None of the other goldfish are showing signs of ICH yet... however, they are starting to behave a little differently (staying towards bottom of tank and not being as active as they usually are). I am worried it is because of this second batch of the treatment... which has STILL NOT worked for the two ich infested fishies (which, if I were to follow directions on the packet... I would be retreating the tank AGAIN tonight with the tablets). I *LOVE* my goldfish and do not want them to suffer or worse yet, die.
Anyone have any suggestions as to how to cure this ICH without the fish all dying, which would be heartbreaking!!
Just FYI : I have been keeping fish tanks for about 10 yrs now... and haven't had such a persistant ICH problem like this one in the past. So, I am not a complete novice... but am stumped on this one.
