Not much positive results I can see other than claiming being toxic to scaleless fish which in your case is not but there are people who swear it is good enough to eliminate ich parasites.

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 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.
