I like to add a few drops of Coppersafe to my aquarium water to deter ick(don't use coppersafe if you have inverts). I'm not sure wheter or not it's bad for fry the excess copper but it could help punch out the ick with a salt combo. Also, I have to order my methylene blue online. I have yet to see it in any shop, even the aquatics only stores around me.

Anyways, I hope your fry pull through and thrive! :)

I know coppersafe is stronger and not recommend for fry for that reason but if this second round of maracide doesnt work i will try it . And thanks for the tip on methylene blue :)

Update: after giving the full dose yesterday morning I am happy to report I can no longer spot any ick spots nor can I find any dead fry. I think building up their tolerance when I gave the round of smaller doses and then giving the ick a good one two kocked it out but the fry were used to it enough. I will still dose the tank for the next 2 doses in full force to make sure it is gone for good but so far good news. Also I think it might have something to do with the new Maracide. They have this new thing called BioSpheres that supposedly treats the fish and not just the water now allowing you to give less quantities of meds in the tank. Also I managed to pick up a yellow hmpk yesterday not completely perfect but not bad either so if I ever want to breed my yellow girl again I have someone to cross her with.

Pictures some of the little ones came to the surface today :) The bigger ones are above 1.5 cm and the rest are staying about 1cm long. Not sure why they shot up growing so fast :/ but I am happy they did.

I'm so glad your fry have responded to treatment. That is fantastic news!
If that happened to me, I'd be afraid to medicate them, but again if I didn't, they'd die for sure.
