Rated 5 out of 5 by Candymancan Great for ICH
Been in the aquarium hobby for 20 years now, and anytime i get ich on my fish from aquarium stores like petsmart or what not. I always use this stuff. Within 3-6 days the ich is usually always gone.. never had issues with it. So far its the best stuff i found.. Id r ather use this then salt and raising temps to 89-90f which can actually roast most of your fish and usually never kills ich anyway

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nick678 good product overall so far
I had to start usig this last Saturday and was fine with shaking up the bottle only because I shook up the bottle before taking off the sealer inside the cap but the next day I shook it up with the lid closed and medicine flew all over my room and stained my floor bad the only reason I am giving this product four stars is because the white spots are clearing up from my fish otherwise nI wouldn't be giving all these stars so I recommend if you have to use this product wrap something like a napkin around the lid when you shake the bottle up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RattieRat23 Works but stains
For Stains (wood floors and skin anyway): I got some on my laminate wood floors, it was very noticeable and a lot (you must shake bottle before use, make sure the lid is secure) I was able to get it out by using HOT water and BLEACH. With the bleach being slightly more concentrated, and mopped right away. Dab up excess ick treatment first though(DONT WIPE it will SPREAD!). I went over it a few times with the mop and while a small stain remains, it is not noticeable. This only worked for recent spots. I have a much smaller, but older stain that did not come out. I haven't attempted to thoroughly clean it though so we'll see after a few more moppings if it fades. For skin it comes out after a few times of showers/hand washing, if you don't want to risk it, rubber gloves are helpful.
The bottle says 25% water changes with each use, my guess is that it may lower oxygen in the tank and/or raise Ph. A few of my fish are becoming sluggish and sitting at the top of the tank so I am doing a water change. If your tank temp is higher I suggest leaving the lids open for ventilation or lowering the temp. The bottle doesn't say whether the two together is bad but to be on the safe side one or the other should be taken in consideration.
So far my ich is not spreading and is contained, I haven't seen it go away completely yet. But no fish have died from the ich so I'm not complaining (I also haven't used it for the full treatment time). I took a star away because of how easy it stains. (Also I have had no problem with aquarium decor becoming discolored.) It does dye the water blue for a short period.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Justin15 Works good! Stains everything!
The treatment works good! It gets rid of ick but it stains everything I dropped the bottle and it stained my bed sheets, my floor, my hand and feet and everything thing in my tank including the ornaments, airline tubing and the Aquariums sealant. So be very careful when using this product.
