Ick Update

Well, all my clowns are still alive this morning. 5 were schooling together nicely. One was six feet away on the opposite side of the tank playing with himself. Well, by himself.

So far no ick spots on any of the other fish. How long do they usually take to show?

Yesterday was exhausting, I feel a little better about it today. So far none of the fish show any adverse side effects of the medication.

Of course, I have to do the final treatment tomorrow afternoon. If the medication is going to bother them, I assume it would be after the second treatment when the concentration of medicine in the tank is doubled.

Hahaha! I have seen that episode. I've probably seen all of them. Charlie was watching them all morning again today.

Well, hopefully the medication I used takes care of them. I'm worried about it doing more harm than good. Does anyone know how long it usually takes before the white spots show up on the other fish in the tank?

i think it depends on how bad it is on your clowns and how quickly you treat the ich. keep in mind that when you kill the ich is when it is in the water it'self. before it hides back into the gravel or it's in the fish it'self.

The tomont may swim for several hours before settling on and attaching to the substrate, a plant, or some other surface. During that time it is susceptible to chemicals and medication will be effective. Once attached, it begins its reproductive stage. It encysts and begins rapidly dividing. At this point, it is again immune to chemicals. Within a few days, hundreds of new organisms burst from the cyst, sprout cilia and start swimming in search of a host.
~ that is in my notes from a website...sorry don't remember what one. lol. i keep a lot of random fish stuff on my sticky notes on my cmp.
