Thanks. She seems so much happier. Now she actually swims around a bit instead of just sitting on her leaf.

UPDATE #2: Blush is looking awesome today! I can no longer see any visible Ich. Her fins are no longer clamped, her eyes are bright, and she tried to eat. I think the only reason she spit the food out is because maybe she doesn't like the flavor. I made sure to give her tiny pieces. Oh, well. At least she's showing an appetite. I switched her into the next cup of water, which is quite a bit smaller, unfortunately. I feel terrible having her in the cups now that she's more active. She doesn't get as startled anymore when I look at the thermometer. But she still twitches a bit, which shows that she isn't rid of all the parasites yet. She seems sad now that she's in the smaller cup. =(

Good to hear she is getting better everyday.....it is important to continue the treatment for at least 10 days and/or 3 days past the last day you could see the parasite on her body...pesky little buggers can hide in the gills and go unnoticed and reinfect......

Don't worry, I will keep it going for 10 days. I want to be completely sure those little pests are gone.

UPDATE #3: Blush is eating today. I figured out that the pellets were too big and cut them in half. I gave her two halves, since she's tiny. Also, I haven't seen any more ich fall off, so I'm pretty sure she's better. Just to be safe, I'll wait until Wednesday to put her back in the 1 gallon. I'm only using the 1 gal instead of the 3 gal because I can use the heating pad more effectively that way. I won't have a new heater until next month, and she needs to stay warm. Thank you for all of your help! She's looking vibrant, her fins are fully out, she's inquisitive, and she just looks like a whole new fish! She still twitches, which is why I'm going to leave her in treatment for a few more days. That shows that she probably still has a few parasites hiding somewhere.
