So I've been treating my office tank for ick this week... I'm using API Super Ick Cure. Dose, wait 48 hours, dose again, wait 48 hours, and do a water change. Because I have otos and neons in my tank i have been dosing at half strength. As it turns out, tomorrow would be the day that I'm supposed to do a water change.
What should I do?
a) Do the water change today and put in another half dose, and do another water change on Monday
b) Put in another half dose without doing a water change. Water change on Monday.
c) Add pimafix and/or melafix today, water change on Monday (is that going to be too many things in the tank all at once? As I understand it, pima/melafix don't really medicate, they boost fishes' immunity and soothe... is that correct?)
And the instructions on the medication say to take the carbon out of the filter, and replace the carbon after treatment is over... but I don't run carbon in my tank at all. Should I put it in after the water change just to get rid of the remaining meds, and remove it again after a few days?
