    While meth blue will turn anything organic or porous blue, it leeches back out eventually. The big things are the sink and toilet, which significant others might not care to have tinted blue.

    Sorry for the late response,
    I am sure that the nitrites are gone by now, so no point in addressing that.

    Fenbendazole will kill the ich but it is primarily used for internal protozoan and worms. Paraguard should do it, or heat alone, but don't do both. If your going to medicate, keep the temperature...

    I would just keep him in pristine water and it should heal. If in a week you don't see some improvement, treat with tri-sulfa.

    Kanamycin + Furan2 works well on stubborn strains of columnaris. Furan2 is only good for external infections, where kanamycin is readily absorbed. Though it is still better and cheaper to feed to...

    Paraguard is better than prazipro on killing parasites and bacteria, I would follow Rocksor's advice.

    The humic acid released by the driftwood will reduce the KH some but will not lower the GH any. I would go with just a pair as spawning can be aggressive.

    I would do several water changes before switching to Paraguard, to remove the copper from the tank. The paraguard is a much safer medication to use than chelated copper, which is toxic if overdosed...
