Just be sure to keep treating for at least a week to 10 days after you see the last of the spots. Ich has a pretty long life cycle and more than one stage. Here's a good article about it- a little lengthy but really worth reading.

I agree - plants can be replaced but not your fish buddies. Good luck and keep us posted.

The coppersafe stays in for 30 days after just one dose but when i do water changes i do redose the new water with the recommended amount (my nursing math skills get a work out hahah) the salt as you know will only come out with the water changes anyways so i think im safe

I'll bet. I hate feeling like you wish there was more you could do when something happens.

It's not like you can take them out of the tank and treat them LOL.
