How long have you been treating for? Ich can only be killed during its free swimming stage. Keep treating the tank for at least 3-5 days after you no longer see any spots. It may take a couple weeks. Read up on the life cycle of ich to get a better understanding of what its life cycle is and options for treating.There's tons of info on the web on ich. Here's one to get you started.
