Once one fish is exposed to Ich the entire tank has been exposed, and therefore, the entire tank needs to be treated. I can't recall reading what you did, but I do remember Abbey's great "Hospital Sign".
Yes same main tank...but, I determined that the mollies suffered from a fungus. I put them in the hospital tank with Jungle Fungus clear and they were all cleared up by the next day - 3 days later I put them back in the main tank and the white areas reappeared in 24hrs. They are back in fresh hospital tank and will see treatment much longer this time.
I don't see any signs of ick on other fish and otherwise, this Platy is a horse....or a pig and seems really healthy. I am also noticing the Platys are favoring a far corner, musch as they did when the female mollies were removed the first time - I think the male molly is just a pita for all of them!
