Hello all..

New to site so hello to all.

I have a 115 litre tank with coldwater fantails and quite new to keeping fish.Two weeks ago my fish started to show signs of ich ( read symptoms from internet) so i treated the tank with ich/white spot treatment.I treated the fish for ten days until the medication was finished and complete however they are still 'flicking themselves' against the aquariam stones and tank....!!

I don't know if i should buy furthur treatment or just leave them??

Any advice on this would be much appreciated as i would like happy fish and not itchy ones!!!!

Welcome to the site!

If your medication says it's ok to do two treatments back to back I would probably treat again. And do a large water change before a second treatment. If you are using charcoal in your filter media remove it first.
