    Thank you M!

    Luckily I seem to have done something right.....I have been using a EHEIM Everyday Fish Feeder for the past week to prepare for my vacation and it works great

    Now....I also have a UV Sterilizer AA Aquarium 3 Watt Mini Green Killing Machine Internal UV Sterilizer-AAUV3W arriving today, but I figure do not go there until all is good again!

    The one main thing I can think of is that the sterilizer may render any medications you have in the water ineffective.

    Yes not going to use it until I return from vacation and know for sure my tank is healthy again......unless someone thinks it will help once the meds are done.

    My thought now is to wait until Wednesday morning and reassess. If still no sign of Ich then, it will have been 5 days since I last saw evidence of it in my tank and I will have treated it the whole time and should have caught it with the meds when it was vulnerable. I really feel like the Ich treatment is tough on my fish and 3 doses may be their limit if they are going to survive. I will keep the temp at 82, which is the acceptable range for my fish types and I could do a 50% WC on Weds after the meds have had there full window of effectiveness and replenish the salt at the standard dose for my tank.

    What do you think of this, if everything stays the same on water quality and diminished fish activity.....

    I am just a bit unclear on whether it's wise to put in more Ich meds or just keep the temp raised and the salt level where it should be....
