Unhappy Re: Quick Cure/Malachite Green/Formalin Warnings

Thanks, I didnt knew that one. What make it more dangerous is that we know how to store it, but do store owners know??? Worrisome. Is there an alternate medication???

Goldfish tolerate salt well, so if ich is the problem, I think the safest and most effective medication is salt and heat. Using dissolved aquarium salt, work your way up to .3% salinity (3 teaspoons per gallon) over the course of 1.5-2 days. Gradually bring up the temperature to about 80*F. This is usually all that is needed to kill off ich, and salt is usually affective in treating other problems too.
