Thanks Neenjar. I'll try to keep up the temp and treat him for 14 days. Can't wait for my boy to get better so I can put him in his tank again.

Oh, that's great! I hope it works then. lol

Kay I have one more question, is it okay to mix some meds together and keep them? Like I found the thing that says with JFC to mix one tablet with 10 tablespoons of water to make a concentrated mixture then add one tablespoon per gallon. So can I make this concentrated mixture, seal it in a container and keep it for future use, or will it go bad??

I have no idea. I wondered that, too because you don't want to waste it.

Okay, so they just happened to not have any Jungle Ick Guard. They had the fizzing tabs. But they also had Wardleys Ich meds. I got that instead because it was cheaper, liquid, had better instructions and had that active malachite green or whatever. It seems alright. Anyone ever used it before?? Turned his water blue.

Never used it, but malachite green is what you are looking for. is the tank glass with silicon beads? if so the silicon will forever have a green\blue tint to it. :) my 55 planted ended up that way. looked kinda cool, a little green border.

No he's in a 3 gallon punch bowl, lol. I have to improvise for med tanks. But he seems to be doing well.
I have another question, lol.
The directions say to treat, after 24 hours change 50% of water and treat again, then 3rd day change 50% of water and treat again. It says to only use the treatment 3 times a week. So, do I wait a week after the 3rd day to treat again or a week after the 1st day of treatment? And after that 4th day do I change his water completely? Or leave him in it till I treat him again? It's so confusing. lol. If you guys want, I can type up the directions.
