Ich is always in your tank, its how clean you keep your water that keeps your fish healthy.

What is you NO3 or Nitrate levels?

What do you feed your fish and how ofter?

What type of fish have it?

What "treatments" are you refering to? Because none of the reef safe ich treatments work IME.

The best thing to combat ich is clean water, good food, and low stress.

It's a freshwater tank. The only fish that are affected by it are my Tiger Barbs. I have tried a generic type Ick treatment, fizzing. I heard something about it being affected by water tempature for tropical fish.

Ohhh I see.

Dont know much detail about freshies with ich. I would say a constant temp will help, and I know high water temps slows the life cycle, at least in salt water.

I always used copper safe to treat freshwater ick and it cleared it up fairly quickly, but haven't had a freshwater tank in some time. Note, do not use copper safe if you have snails or crawdads in your freshwater tank as it will kill them.
