Keep the high temps and medication up for four days after all signs of visible ich are gone. It's a sure-fire way.

4 days after spots on fish are gone, got it....

Thou really I have albino cory's in there and I can NOT tell if they have white spots or not....so would it be safe enough to judge by the Rummy's and other fish only???

If your albinos are like my friend's, then they have somewhat translucent fins, right? My bronzes and peppereds have a translucent dorsal fin...and ich is always present on fins as well as the whole body. If the fins are free of the white spots, then your corys don't have ich (99%). Ive noticed on every fish I've had with ich, the fins were almost always the first body part afflicted with it. But yeah, most likely if you use your other fish to judge, youll be pretty safe. This is a well established tank, right? Your cories will probably shrug it off anyway! =)

Here's a picture of them guys. I just spent a great while watching them and honestly I can not see whether or not they are infected too, from what I see they're not...but really they're albion's and its too hard to tell

No this is not a established tank (which I consider established - up & running 5-6 months). Its been set up & cycled 1st week Nov, started stocking the week before Thanksgiving. Been hassle free since, up until now, water paramters had not sown any new peaks since the initial cycle. While I woudl consider it a sable tank, i'd def by *my* standards not consider it established

Thanks for all your help & patience with me here Kelso...I know jack about sickness, I really do....I just set there for well over 1 hrs while feeding them watching all Cory....I can NOT see any signs anywhere...could it be the Tetra's are infected but not the Cory? Or will ich attack EVERYBODY in the tank??

Oh definitely! It may just be your tetras and only your tetras! What I've learned about cories is that once they're acclimated they're terribly hard to kill! Out of the 16 Cories I have bought, 3 have died, all from stupid fin rot, which they had from the store. The first three I have ever bought have seen my other fish get ich, fungus, fin rot, and general sickness..yet are here still today. They've seen more diseases than most fish, yet have never gotten any themselves! Tetra's are more prone to ich, from what I've seen. But for your final question...nope. It'll attack all the fish, but the ones strong enough to fight it off won't get it. Bettas and cories from what I've seen are very good at fighting and resisting ich.
