    Don't ever jump the gun on anything. As long as the fish is still eating well, and doesn't seem to be in any type of distress, don't make any changes to the water conditions. Healthy fish can fight of ich on their own- don't intervene.

    Ich is to fish, as the common cold is to humans. You don't go to the hospital everytime you start coughing, do you?
