Ick

Hello Everyone,

my ADF are in a tank with a fish that has Ick. I’ve read online that I’m supposed to raid the water temp to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. That is kinda high for my amphibious friends. Has anyone done this before? Is it safe, and what stress signs should I look for?

I found Ich-X works the best for me to get rid of ich, but I don't have any ADF - do you have a quarantine tank that it/they can go into while you treat the tank?

Pretty sure the ADFs can handle high temps for periods of time. Worth looking into. Just be warry of any chemicals used to treat with. Stick to one treatment (heat).

Actually looking at this treatment for treating fungus on these guys looks like the heat treatment for that is the same/similar as treating for ich.

I don’t want to move my frogs because the odds are they now have it. Once I’m treating the tank, I’d rather treat everything.

That article suggest way higher than what I need! My tank is at 80 atm, hopefully that’s high enough.

Yeah they should be fine. From the reading I did it sounds like they dont get ICH which is a plus.

Recommend double checking the temp required to eradicate it though, I dont recall if 80F is high enough or if you need to go a few degrees higher. Anyhow good luck.

I don't like using heat to treat ich as it tends to stress the fish out too much. My go to for said problem is Paraguard by Seachem. It doesn't require raising the temp and after a week to 10 days, there is no problem.

I don't know if Paraguard is frog safe or not. A phone call or email to Seachem should be done to confirm if it is safe to use or not.

Sorry just got on a interwebs rabbit hole and read about it. Dont recall exactly the article. General consensus I believe, however if you have fish then it still gets to the fish and water column so treatment is necessary one way or other.
