Robert DG Posted September 27, 2020 Share Posted September 27, 2020 Made huge mistake - failed to quarantine new fish in new tank set up, ich showed up. I used Ich X for 5-6 days per instructions, ich on 3-4 peacock cichlids disappeared in 3-4 days. Lost some fish. Water parameters within appropriate limits during process. My question is are there any steps after treating a display tank, that should be taken, ie. disinfect entire tank, prior to purchasing additional fish in future (and of course, after learning the hardway, will be using your med trio in quarantine tank before they go into display tank). Carbon media already removed before treating, do I remove all other media and disinfect or replace ? Is the ich in the main tank considered treated, no longer an issue per se, unless ich is re introduced ? I am not sure how to address the main tank after treatment, what to do with the media (bacteria affected vs start over with cycling process), remove remaining fish to quarantine, treat there, and disinfect the main tank. Please provide some steps to follow post ich treatment to display tank. Thank you !!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
