Could be wrong, but I think the water changes are primarily for preparing for the next dose. I'm using Tetra Ick Guard. The directions say to do a 25% water change before any new treatment. Other than that, it makes no mention of water changes.

This brand says to "check water parameters before you begin". Making sure they are within acceptable range. After that it's just add the drops daily until all fish show no signs. The amazing thing is I bought a lot of java moss, which came with many tiny baby RCS. I've figured by now, they are either all eaten, or would have died with the treatment.

I disturbed the moss, and ended up seeing tiny shrimp, alive and well in my bucket water. I saved them, but didn't expect that So, this treatment isn't as "lethal" as the directions say about removing inverts.

I'm still treating the tank, to go a few more days after the spots are gone, per advise given here.
