    As long as you are vacuuming your substrate well to get rid of the babies, you will hopefully see the spots disappear - then keep it up for at least another week or two to make sure you get everything to die off.

    Well, when you vacuum the substrate, you will be removing water too - fresh water never hurts : )

    Ahhh - unfamiliar with those - cool device.

    Yes, it would be a good idea to change the water too - anytime a fish is ill, fresh water is a good idea - as long as you aren't using meds, try one change a day along with a gravel vac.

    I read a post not too long ago of someone who treated fish with ich in a quarantine tank that had no substrate and the poster could see all the eggs that fell to the floor and was able to vacuum them up - with substrate they can hide so it's important to be thorough.

    + to what Imma has said
    also, when you do the water changes (and I'd do one every 3 days or so) make certain the new water is 86F. It's important to keep the temp steady. It's also important to use enough dechlorinator with every water change to treat the entire tank. so if you do a 50% water change still add enough conditioner/dechlorinator for 100% of the water in the tank. Does that make sense?

    First water change after the spots appeared has been completed. Dechlorinator was used, gravel was cleaned, 50% of the water changed and i also add Aquavital bactosprint. Temperature was kept steady during the whole procedure. Hope i didnt do anything i shouldnt.

    What is Aquavital bactosprint? If it's not a dechlorinator, why would you use it? just curious.
