NANFA-- darter "ich" and nutrition

My newly collected darters, hog suckers, and redside dace seem to be
getting the "ich". What have you folks used in the past to treat these
types of fish. I presume that they are somewhat sensitive to malachite
green or copper?

Also, I would be curious to get a quick poll as to what people are feeding
their darters, especially the smaller ones.

One last one, what kind of longevity records have folks experienced with
your darters?
