Yesterday when I was getting ready to feed my fish I had seen that my blue platy had caught the ichk, so I slowly turned up the temperature to 85 and I did research that's how your suppose to keep it for a week. Today the blue platy died right along with my peach platy, all my tetras seem to have no signs as well as my dwarf gourami. What should I do =[

Do you have an air stone in the tank? That will help oxygenate the water while you have the temps. up that high.

High temps deplete the oxygen in the water. You can try adding AQ salt (unless you have live plants) since livebearers do ok with it but the heat should be able to handle it.

Ich sux! But you are on the right track. Raise the temp to 86 not 85 and maintain that temp for a week. Do partial water changes (Approx. 25%) every other day if possible. Just cuz your not seeing ich on your tetras doesnt mean its gone. Follow the treatment with another water change and you should be ich free!

Yeah, my goldfish died of ich. Aquarium Salt is the best, try to add a little more than average.
