Re: Wardley Complete Remedy? (kind of long) :(

I have an update already. The danios had been in the tank about 2 months and
been doing great, so I thought I would go ahead and put them in the 30gal.
tank tonight as they wouldn't be bothered so much by a slightly higher PH
like my Rams would. I netted one out and found Ich! Although I hadn't seen
any sign of ich on the dead Ram this morning, I guess I have to assume the
rest of the Rams and Danios have it also. Once again, should the Wardley be
effective against it as it claims?
