Treatment must be done in 2 weeks at most to be sure that every parasite is eliminated otherwise they will only make a reappearance once the fish becomes stress again. Ich always hits the weak points of the fish and stress is often one of them.
Thanks for the welcome! I did raise the temp to 80-82F. I'm not sure what that comes to in celsius though, lol.

That would be all right. About 28 degrees Celsius I think. I'm too used in Celsius unfortunately. 86 degrees Fahrenheit is the maximum most fish can tolerate. Just be sure your fish can tolerate the temperature.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I don't know what's going on but the spots are completely gone. Everything looks normal now. I haven't even used the quick cure yet.

Ammonia is now between 0.25 and 0.50ppm as of this morning.

Also, I dumped the carbon from my biobag and added the quick cure.
