Yesterday, I woke up and one of my phantom tetras was covered in ich spots. I quickly removed him to the quarantine tank where sadly he later passed on. I started ich treatment in my larger tank right away although no other fish show signs of ich. the fish that got ich was one of our first fish
My question is, how long should I continue treating the tank?
This is our first experience with ich so I am unsure of everything we are doing yet want to do right by the fish. We did a 25% water change, removed the carbon filter, treated with ich guard, are slowly increasing the water temp from 76 to 84 but it's only at 80 right now. I also added salt and stress coat as I normally would for a water change. And, we added ich attack.
I have a 150 gallon, unplanted freshwater aquarium. My water levels are all in the good range. We have an odd mix of fish but it hasn't changed in a while.
