In my opinion, yes. But then again I always use meds right off. My philosophy on disease treatment is hit it hard and hit it fast. That's true of any disease, but I've never had good luck with the high temp treatment with ich so proceed just like I would any other disease with meds right out of the gate.It's been two straight weeks of 87 degree (Fahrenheit) heat treatment + frequent bare bottom siphoned water changes and there's still ich present. Very faintly but still there. Every time it seems like they're disappearing another odd spot or two appears to take their place.
Should I resort to medication by now? Have been thinking of trying Seachem Paraguard.
