Ick Disease

I have a common goldfish that I got a while ago, it lives in a 10 gallon tank (I only put about 8 gallons, though) and I did (about) a 40% water change, and something happened, and my fish got ick. I bought a bottle of Methylene Blue, but because I am living in a non-english speaking country, the bottle says nothing about how much I am supposed to put in, and for how long. Does anybody know? Thanks.  Smiley

Methylene blue isn't commonly used to treat ich, rather go buy some sea salt (make sure there's no iodine in it) and add that to the tank at a .3% solution, being about a teaspoon per gallon Smiley You should also upgrade, a common goldfish won't be doing that well in a small 10 gallon tank, these fish have the potential to reach 1 foot in length...
