hi, Does anyone know how long I am supposed to use aquarisol for treating ick on cichlids? a week? 2weeks? Also using aquarisol for treating ick are you supposed to use it everyday and change 25% of the water everyday before adding a new dose of aquarisol? After the ick is gone can I put carbon back into the filter?

Most ick medications suggest to treat daily with 25% water changes before new treatment, remove carbon and keep treating for around 3 days after the last sign of ick. Yes, after the last treatment you can put your carbon back into the filter... I've never used that particular product though, but like I said most of them for ick are the same....

make sure you raise your temp to 85 degrees F. That will speed up the incubation rate of the Ich and kill it when it becomes water-bourne.
