Hello Fryup,

I moved your thread to the tropical fish disease section. You'll probably get more responses that way.

As for water changes, I just read my RidIch+ bottle and it claims that for best results, 25% of the water should be changed before each treatment. I find that most of the meds I have on hand state the same thing after a few doses (25%).

If you don't see that on your directions and you still are hesitant about changing out any of the water, you can always get on the mfr. website and see what they have to say on there.

Good luck to you.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
