Hey all,

Just this morning I noticed the first signs of ich on my cardinal tetras. They had been infected two weeks previously and I attempted to treat it with ich attack (it appeared effective for a week), but it seems I may have stopped treatment to soon. My question is, can I combat the problem just by raising the temp to 86 degrees? The tank has amano shrimp, otto cats, and cardinals with blyxa, monte carlo, and staurogyne repens. I'm hoping that the temperature won't kill off any of the flaura or fauna.

Thanks!

For anyone who stumbles across this, I found help with this thread. I will be treating with ich attack again, but will not be using heat because I do not want to stress out my fish or cook my shrimp/plants.

Unfortunately, I do not. I should though! Problem is, I don't have another mature filter, and I also won't be adding fish regularly enough to warrant a qt tank.

You could remove sensitive plants, and just keep the temperature up.
