Yes, I feed normally, which for me is dry foods (flake, pellet, sinking, whatever) once a day.

No. leave it a couple more days. I have every time not noticed absence of spots until close to the 6 or 7 day. But there is always the chance that a couple of cysts survive treatment, so better safe than sorry.

ok so i am reducing the temp. doing the water change on saturday. no white spots that i can see.

but my ancaris (i think, its a stem plant, very long with leaves that kind of make star if you look at it from the top down)

anyway, that plant is dying i think, its dropped all its leaves and is basically a stem, all 10-20 stems :/

my vals have started to brown, and in general my plants are just not as green.

i would do the water change sooner but i have to work my 2nd job the next two days and just not enough hours in the day :(

Plant issues are to be expected. The Vallisneria will likely recover, just leave ithe roots planted. Stem plants like Anacharis not sure.
