It's just a difference of opinion, but I would disagree. Adding any outside source to your tank is a bad idea. "all organic" or not. Ich is present in every tank. It's only under stress and bad water conditions that it becomes prevalent. Nothing gets rid of ich permanently, so In my opinion, it's best to avoid adding anything to your tank that shouldn't be there naturally. Because the chance of it affecting the balance of your contained echo system is just asking for trouble. Again, this is my opinion and can be taken or left.
