Turned water temp up and added salt to help cure Ich...Corys are now lethargic! Help
Today when I woke up, all my fish has several white spots on them. I identified this as ich. I have 7 Rummys, 9 Neons, and 2 Pepper Corys. The water temp is currently at 83 degrees F. I also added 29 teaspoons of aquarium salt (1 tsp per gallon). The Rummys still have their bright red face, and no color loss in the Neons either. They all seem to be swimming around just fine. The only ones who seem to be affected by the change is the Corys who are both snuggled up together in the corner of the tank with their faces pointed out. It saddens me just looking at them. What do I do? Someone please help me! The lights have also been turned off because I heard this helps with the healing by providing less stress.
I don't know what to do and I don't want them to die! :(
I will add just as much salt tomorrow afternoon to bring the overall salt level to .2%. I will then start to do daily water changes while adding salt back in to keep the level at .2%. I read that this will help with the healing and killing of the Ich.
Once again, please help me with detailed information on anything I should be doing differently. I have never had problems with these fish and it saddens me now to see this infection come upon all of them :(
