salt you can keep adding, even after the ich is gone since it will help build a healthy immune system. Also can you tell us the temperature of the tank since black mollies mainly catch ich in cold water.

Musho, you are actually turning the tank into a brackish water and then marine environment. Focus the concern on the other occupants than just the mollies.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

no im saying if she is adding 1 tsp per 5 gallons, she can keep that up every time she does a water change, not raise the salinity to saltwater.

you also have to remember to compensate for water evaporation. if you add salt at the concentration of 1tsp per 5 gallons without factoring in water evaporation along with the water changes you'll have a much higher salt concentration than you were originally aiming for.

you may want to bump that temperature on up if treating for ich. the medications are generally more effective at a higher temperature due to the effect it has on the ich's life cycle.
