2 weeks is the most common recommendation, but really the spots should be all gone by a week. The second week is just to make sure that they parasites have all died. Is it NECESSARY to wait the whole two weeks? Probably not. However, it's easy enough to do so I've never bothered to test it.

Does your fish still have spots?

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

I didn't see any spots on him this morning but just to make sure i got out my led light, yeah he has a spot on his tail. I know the heat is working since when i first noticed it he was covered and big spots. So one more week for sure maybe 2 to be certain. I have had the temp at 88 steady. I originally wanted 86, I put in an extra heater i had so both are set to 86 but 88 is where its at and the fish seem to be fine with that. I have good aeration also.

There ARE white spots that are not ich.... it's possible that that's what remains. Can you post a pic?

I don't think that's ich. I don't expect treatments to take care of that.

Ich keeps coming back

No not velvet. Quite possibly lymphocystosis - a viral infection. It doesn't usually kill, goes away on its own (in time) and is brought out with stress.

Sure is a lot of it. Usually there's only a spot or two.
