First of all, sorry for not being on here for a while, my life's been good but busy.

My poor little dwarf gourami, Neo got ich about a week after I got him from the pet store. I raised the temp to 88 in the tank and he seemed to get better. Today though, I found him lying almost flat on the ground. His ich is back :-( He only moved when I tried to get him with the net. I've got him in a one gallon heated QT ATM. He'll go after food only if I put it literally on his lip. I've got a ~3 gallon dose of SeaChem Kanaplex in there.
More info:

Tank: 30 gallon, planted. QT'd in a 1 gallon.
Params: Main tank: 0 QT: 0
Tankmates: 6 tiger barbs in the main tank. They haven't shown any signs of any troubles either time Neo got sick.

The last time I added fish was about 3 weeks ago. Should I also add salt or Tetracycline? I'm trying to find some clove oil if things go even more south....

How long did you heat the tank?
I must say im afraid the 1g QT tank will be to stressful. A DG needs a bigger qt tank. I dont qt in less then 10g . Was the heat treatment done in the main tank..or the 1g?

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately the little guy died this morning :cry: To answer your question, the heat was done in the 20 gallon.
