double ick
 
Hi I have a silver dollar in quarintine because he has ick. Its been a while since hes been in there almost 2 weeks now. Im thinking its just a regular dot not ick. Anyways I have a swordtail that looks to have ick to. Can I treat both fish in the same bowl.

Bowl? :shock:
Once one fish shows symptoms of ich your entire tank has been exposed. You should take them out of QT, put them back in their tank and treat the entire tank for ich.

I've used Kordon's Rid-Ich with great success.

PS. Each of your tanks houses fish that are sensitive to meds so you will need to use the meds at 1/2 the required dose.
Sharks, Cats & Loaches are considered "sensitive" fish due to their lack of scales.
