i was testing with stripes before and they were reading that it was 7.0. i used the master test kit by hagen. and it reads .01, i didn't have nitrates but with the stripes its 0. okay but what about my other fish the ones that are sensitive. i cant just remove my synadontis and catfish into my quarintine tank i have other fish in there.
my biggest concern is my ghost knife, bichir,angle and twig catfish.

The only info I can add is that I used the West Texas treatment and I have clown loaches & a pictus, which are also considered very sensitive and I didn't have any problems.

I would wait a week after seeing the last fish spot, or ICH free, and then replace the media with NEW media. I wouldn't use that that I took out of the infected tank even if it had dried and been rinsed. But that's just me.
