Hmm... Usually I just seperate the fish from the plants and put the fish in a different tank. I do prefer to use heat, though, not salt. It seems like last time, even though there was salt, when the water temperature was down to 82 for a couple of days the ick came back full force. Once I got the temperatrue back where it should have been, it went away. So, I'm convinced it's heat that works the best. And, I don't think the plants would enjoy a water temperature of 88 degrees for two weeks....
