Ick question

So I noticed the dreaded white dots (one on each side) on my chili rasbora two days ago and have been treating daily with quick cure, raised the tank temperature to 85 degrees, added aeration, and have kept the lights mostly off. The two dots are still there! When will they fall off so the meds/chemicals can do the work??

20 gal hex: 3 X Guppy,6 X Chili Rasbora, 2 X Dwarf Cory Hasbrosus (soon to be 4), 1 X Female Betta Imbellis

20 gal tall:currently cycling, soon to be re-aquascaped

If its ich they should and will fall of very soon they usually take afew days.

Sometimes you can see more spots form after the first few drop of depending on when you upped the heat or added the medication, if a paracite has entered the host far enough to avoid meds or heat but hasnt burrowed enough to create the 'spot' which can give the impression that it isnt working but give it a week and it should be gone.
Fish die belly upward and rise to the surface. It's their way of falling.
