I have had great success using Ich-x to treat my fish for active ich outbreaks. It has even worked great for my puffers and fry tank. I highly recommend having this on hand, especially if you plan to get new fish.
The night a brought home my Keyhole Cichlids from the LFS, I noticed one spot on one of the fish. Wanted to take care of it ASAP so it wouldn’t spread. Raised the temp to 81 from 76 and dosed according to the directions for 5 days. All plants, Nerite snail and other fish in tank did well through the dosing and Ick free.
I had multiple rainbow fish with ich in my quarantine tank of about 22 fish. I wasn’t sure at first if it was ich but after a day it began quickly spreading to more fish. I had this on hand from watching Cory’s videos and immediately started dosing this per the instructions on the bottle. I dosed this everyday into my bare bottom 40 gallon qurentine tank along with doing a 50% water change. I also upped the temperature slowly from 75 to 83. For filtration I had 3 sponge filters running. It took 13 days of doing this until the last fish no longer had ich. I continued to dose ich x for a few more days just to be safe. Thankfully all of my Rainbowfish survived this process. I purchased more ich x so I can be ready if it happens again.
Did both temperature increase, salt and ICH-X; ich was gone in only 3 days. Easy fix. : ) Thanks Cory and the team for providing such an amazing product!
