      Ich, Proform C

      Hey,

      After some research it seems like proform C is the preferred ich treatment of many. With the rising spring temperatures, I am having an ich outbreak in a new pond with sarassa, shubunkin and comet goldfish as well as 2 small koi. I seem to have caught the infection fairly early, as only two fish appear to have spots.

      I was wondering if anyone had any experience with proform c treating ich. I have an elephant ear and hardy water lily in the pond, will it be necessary to remove those plants during treatment? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

      I couldnít find any meds locally and had to resort to eBay. The shipping estimate is within the next week, Iím hoping that the water temperature is still low enough to allow the fish to last that long before treating (60-75 degrees)

      Yes, Proform C would be the treatment of choice for all of the microscopic parasites except flukes. You do not need to remove plants during treatment.

      I just want to add that koi pox can be mistaken for ich. Its also white but its much bigger. Koi pox cannot be cured. Its brought out in this time of year as the pond temps change. You can Google images of it to see if its similar to what you have. If its ich it will go away with treatment. If it doesn't then its probably koi pox (which will go away on its own when the water temp warms up).

      Yes I’ve read up on that a bit. I have a lot of experience with aquariums though and pretty quickly identified it as ich, tiny grains of salt on the fins mostly. Appreciate the advice
