ICH is a disease that is curable, but will kill your fish in a matter of seconds. You should go to a nearby petstore, your local walmart sells an ich killer but it very well will kill your fish too. I buy a cristalized like Ich killer, and it works very well. You dont have to raise the temp. in your tank or worry about your fish dieing. You just have to put the recommended amount in, and wait. I suggest you dont put more than that, making the water more toxic. It will kill your fish if you do overdose.

WHAT REALLY IS ICH?

Ich is a disease that sucks at the blood in your fish. IT will later inflame the gills thus, the fish will not be able to breath. Your fish will almost die instantly. If your fish have had Ich for a long time and it spreads, your fish will most likely not be curable because, your fish will have little to no blood left in the body.
