Treating Ich in F8 Puffers

I have heard so many horror stories about fish with Ich that I am taking this precaution now!

I keep F8 puffers and know that I need to be very very careful about meds as they have skin and not scales. If one was to develop ich with what and how should I treat it?

If you keep them with salt in the water (ie brackish) you should not have to worry about ich, and the best treatment would be (guess what ;)) salt lol. Never actually heard of ich in a "salted" tank :)

Phew! They have got salt in their water, S.G. of 0.004 heading up to 0.008, so hopefully its something I'll never come accross with them, thank you so much for your help
