hey guys about 2 months ago I got a 20 and set it up for a panther fiddler that my girlfriend wanted and as we didn't just want a lifeless tank we bought a couple guppies from the big box pet store and they brought ich to our tank.

we just noticed this today so it has taken a while to become apperant but none the less i wanna take care of the problem.

so my question is how can i cure this ich with out killing the crab??? my rid ich product says not to use with inverts and i know about the whole raise the temp and add salt but i dont know how much salt i can add without affecting the crab???

I treated ich in my roomies tank before with shrimp using the API ich and API fungus cure. I've also been doing a 500x normal strength salt dip on my cherries for parasites, but I can't comment on how the crab will handle it.

Rubbermaid tote and a sponge filter, $20 to setup and keep him safe during treatment?
