Great! When the 10-14 days is up, what should I do then? Should I dose again?


Thank you.

No, in 10-14 days the parasite should be dead. You still need to keep them in QT for 6-8 weeks and no fish in your display tank so any ich in there will die off.

It`s going to be very important that you keep the DT fishless for 8 weeks as Larry said. The parasite should be dead in the QT. Just keep good water quality in the QT till the DT is ready.

I added some more copper last night since the test results' color looked a little low. I will test again today or tomorrow.
