I have ich in a few fish in my planted tank. The guy at our pet shop says aquarium salt as directed is the best treatment. I have a lot of plants that are doing great and donít want to risk hurting them. Can I safely use aquarium salt at the rate of 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons of water?? I do not want to risk the plants. I hope showed up after a heater crapped out and temps dropped to mid 60ís about a week ago. Fish are acting good and appear to be inproving only a few cardinal tetras and a German ram are infected right now.
Plants in the tank include, Italian Val, Anubias, bacopa carolinia, broadleaf chain sword, several different crypts, S. Repens, dwarf sag, Brazilian pennywort, ludwigia, and java fern.
Also we are going to increase the temperature to around 82 F to cycle the ich through faster.
