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.

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.
