Neither fish has had any white spot while in the tank, but i have added the second treatment anyway, because you should always finish a course of medication.

The main tanks Ammonia levels are down some, somewhere between 0 and 1mg/L at the moment, and all the fish are looking happier, and none have had any signs of white spot for about 4 days.

As its now been more than seven days since i treated them for the white mold, should i treat for white spot as well, despite not having seen any in the tank for 4 days?
if they aren't showing showing signs of ich then you can wait until they show again so you are sure they are not gonna be stressed with unneeded treatment. good luck with your fish keeping

Over Stocking Only Becomes A Problem For The Fish When They Can Feel It, But It Becomes Your Problem When They Feel It.
