Well, assuming it isn't a heat-resistant strain, right? Unlikely, probably. Thank goodness that heat destroys ich.... It seems way too easy.......

Heat resistant strains don't improve at the lower 86 degrees. Only once has 86 not done the trick for me - 89 took care of it.

Yeah, it's pretty easy

Its been staying around 87 now so I should be good.

At the risk of counting my chickens before they hatch.... the heat treatment is pretty amazing... my fish don't act like they even notice it, and this ich covered german blue ram, presuming it's gone, completely recovered with just heat.

But, everything isn't gone yet so I should be careful. :D

That's why I push it so hard 😄

I mean, there are other effective ways to treat it...but I firmly believe that heat alone is the easiest and least stressful.

So, no signs of ich still and the fin rot seems to be clearing up almost completely gone I think. :)! Yay!
