So the two balloon mollies I brought home a week ago probably brought ich into the tank. I believe it's stilll minor and manageable. I saw about 2 or 3 small white dots on one, one on another, and two had none but were rubbing their bodies on the decor.
I bought this treatment https://www.amazon.com/Tetra-Ick-Gua...s%2C155&sr=8-2
I have a 20 gallon, and it said one tablet treats ten gallons, and with a 20 gallon I had to use two. I dissolved first, as per directions, then entered into tank which turned water blue for a few hours. I was directed to remove the filter cartridge and sponges.
It says to do a 25 percent water cycle then repeat the tablets in 24 hours if it doesn't go away. So, does this not go away anytime soon? Do I repeat in 24 hours?
In the meantime, the filter is running without a cartridge and probably will cloud water. Prior to this, water parameters were within range.
Anyone care to advise what I should do tomorrow? I hope I don't wake up to dead fish. And I have fry.
