Do you think it is enough to wait for a couple of weeks before to put other fishes inside?
I was told that by this treatment in one week everything should be ok to host new fishes
Thanks a lot for all advises you can give me on this
Agreed, leave the tank empty for at least 6 weeks. After that you will need to quarantine any new fish before it goes into your tank to prevent you from getting ich again even if there aren't any other fish in the display tank
