I use 82-84 degrees & K-salt to treat mine.

Higher temps bring out the ickies to the surface of the fish by giving the parasites a nitro boost. Once the adult parasites fall to the bottom, the eggs from the adults that will turn into baby icks can be destroyed with a concentrated k-salt water solution.
  • Not sure how you would do that with a loach. I would remove the loach & treat him outside the main tank.
  • Did you use the full dosage for the super ick cure for treating your ENTIRE tank?
  • Did you also remove any decorations/driftwood & caves so the medication could get to all the surfaces?
  • What kind of fish do you have in your tank?
