Lost the black molley last night, next time I know how to handle this ick situation better. I only had the fish for about 2 weeks, Im wondering if it was sick when I got him.

It most likely was. Often when you get fish from large pet stores they are already.

I did the recommended dosage and did the 25% water change. It looked like everything was gone, a few days ago it seemed to have come back and again is covered with white specs again. Is there a better ick medicine or should I try a different treatment?

Thanks
I've looked into ich quite a bit and most info says minimum temp at 86f for 14 days will kill it. Ich has trouble breeding at 85f and 2 weeks gets you through all life cycles.
