i follow the exact same routine as jaysee and have also done so for years, still yet to lose a fish to the heat, 86 is technically the number but I go warmer just to be sure. takes about two weeks and in my opinion not as hard on the fish as a chemical. but then again we all have our ways and opinions.

(never used the "extra" aeration either)

in my personal experience I had a group of pictus cats that came down with ich. I had used a ich cure type medication on them even though I had never used meds for ich before. well during the treatment I lost the whole school (7), come to find out they were sensitive to the particular med I was treating them with. im sure if I went with the heat they would have pulled through, but then again hind sight is 20/20

I probably panicked when I should have been patient. :(
ive done this before we all have at one point or another. accessing the situation and choosing the best method to react is always best. like I said I hate usiung meds cause its a chemicals you expose the fish to while they are already stressed.

sorry about the loss btw
