Hotpocket Posted April 4, 2021 Share Posted April 4, 2021 Been treating over two weeks with ich-x. Definitely ich. First week was treating with 9 teaspoons daily for 125 gallon after 30% water changes, past week using 12 teaspoons daily. Heat at 85. Carbon removed. Water specs are perfect. Only clown loaches have been infected, all other fish are fine. 3 of 6 loaches left. Water specs are good, no stress as far as chasing. Hikari advised to stop ich-x and switch to Przaipro thinking it will finish it off. What would you recommend at this point? I am wore down. Thinking about just stopping with the understanding that the last 3 loaches will not make it, and hopefully it will not jump to the other fish, which seem totally immune from it. Some have advised to switch to Safe Copper Aid, which I think will take out the last of the loaches anyway and might put unneeded stress on the other healthy fish, so thinking that just stopping and doing nothing further might be more logical, except for maybe moving to Prazipro. I understand that Prazi is not helpful for ich, so not sure why Hikari thinks it might finish it off. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
