ich s a very persistent parasite. The only way to truly kill ich is with copper. Best way to clean your dt is to remove all fish and leave it fallow (empty) for six to eight weeks. The paraste wll die with no host to prey on. You can treat loaches wth copper, just have to be careful not to dose them too heavily all at once. Bring up the level slowly over a period of 12-24 hours along with setting your temp over eighty and it should clear up in no time.
