it won't go away

three weeks ago i brought a peacock bass, and a few days later it got white spot, the thing is only one other fish has caught it. also i have been doin the treatment since i noticed it and it just wont go. what do i do.

on the first day i put 100 drops, and on the second and third i put 50 drops. i then stop untill a week later. i dont wont to put anymore in because i dont want to over dose the tank.

Maybe you could try the salt and heat method... but I don't know how to start that, maybe someone else can help explain it. Although I don't know if your type of fish can have salt..

What kind of medication are you using. Anything that contains malachite green should work well.

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

hi
i've used that befor,and found it worked well.
did you turn up the temperature ?
if you want i'll post a link to a thread where a member used a certain
way of doing it,and was pleased with the results.
?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
