So many tanks...
754 Posts
I don't use medication for ich and more often than not the fish survives. If there are more than one fish with ich I increase to 80 or 82 degrees (depends on the tank). if you have gravel, do some gravel vacs, this is where the ich will stay for the most part. Try to do it in stages, I shoot for 2 degrees a day in both increase and then reduction when it's time to take it back down. Usually don't keep it at 82 for longer than a week.

Also, try larger or more frequent water changes. QT is probably hard to find and catch a Clown pleco, and since your whole take basically is battling it then I would just heat the tank.
