    How to treat ich when I have aquarium salts in the water?

    Hi there, Some of my guppies have ich, but I have aquarium salts in the water. The only ich treatment I can find contains formaldehyde and malachite green oxalate. I've been told that this is lethal when combined with aquarium salts. Any advice on what I can do? Thanks
