Follow the instructions on the medication unless you still see parasites after the first round of treatments (is so, continue). Ick treatments usually require about 14 days. Good luck and keep us posted, I'm glad he is feeling better :)

Guys we have a problem. Today, Fabio's lamp burned out. He has no source of heat, I am tempted to move him over to his new tank, but its only been 5 days of treatment. The medicine (Jungle's Ich Guard) doesn't specify how long the treatment should last, it just says continue as needed. He hasn't had white spots on him for a few days, and he is acting perfectly normal. I just don't want to contaminate his new tank.

As for the light, we're completely broke till friday, and thats faar too long to wait for another light, fabio will freeze. I have a 10 watt heater in his new tank, but im afraid that will overload his little 1/2 gallon tank.

Please help guys!

You could cup him in a small container and float it in the heated tank so he doesnt contaminate his new space but is still getting treatment if he still needs it. Ive never dealt with ick personally so im unsure of treatment time also but clipping a container with him in it to the side or just half filling his tank and putting his current container in should keep him warm

Yeah, Punki's right, that should work. Sorry the light burned out, what a bummer.
