Aquari-Sol is proclaimed by fish hobbyists world-wide as the most effective preventative treatment against Ick.
Ick (Ichthyophtoirius Mulfifilis) are small ciliate protozoan cysts that look like sugar or salt granules. As these cysts mature, they fall off the fish and then divide into thousands of trophonts (like spores) that can populate your tank and attach all the other fish in your tank.
Aquari Sol can be used to cure outbreaks of Ick (though Quick Cure is recommended). Once cured, Aquari Sol is an excellent preventative treatment that won't harm fish or aquarium plants. Use Aquari Sol weekly and whenever new fish are added to your aquarium.
My zebra danio had a deep red spot on his gill that grew over a few days, and it had what looked like fungus growing on his back. Color was pale, fins were clamped. Just unhappy. Well...Aquari-Sol cured him. That's the good news. The bad news is that it killed 75% of my cabomba plants, and took out 2 tiger barbs. Aquari-Sol is copper salt, so I shouldn't have believed the "safe for plants" reassurance. I'm still mystified as to why the fish died, but I used the meds for 2 days and lost a fish each day following the use of the med. So I attribute it to the medication. *USE ONLY WITH UNPLANTED TANKS* Do research for it being a fish killer. I'm still boggled...
