cories and meds
 
Do cories deal with melafix and pimafix okay or will they not be able to stand it? Half doses?

I have a tiger barb that looks like he may have the start of ich or something. Just curious if i can treat the whole tank to keep the ich from being spread.

What else can tiny white dots on a tail be?

I know take the carbon out of the filter, but will their be any left over effects of the meds in the tank afterwards? Is it suggested to clean things or is it okay to keep fish in it from now on?

I just responded to your thread on this in the Disease section. I asked three questions, Are the spots on any other fish besides the barb; is this a new tank; and can you post a photo of the barb. Not to repeat everything from the other thread, but corys are sensitive to chemicals and medications, but if this is ich, Aquari-sol and Kordon's RidIch are good and seem to have less effect on corys.
