 Hi  guys,
       Need  some  serious  help  from  you  experts  in  here  i  am  very  new  as  an  fish  hobbist  and  started  off  to  try  and  set  up  with  a  tropical  live  plant  tank..  Also  added  some  tetras  slowly.  Recently  off  late  i  got  some  cardinal  tetra  and  feather  fin  tetra  off  kurla  market  in  mumbai  and  most  of  them  have  started  to  have  these  white  spots  .  I  did  apply  some  API  super  ICK  liquid  yesterday  night  nut  the  water  got  cleared  in  30  mins.  I  am  not  sure  if  the  liquid  is  effective  enough.  Few  tips  i  require  from  you  guys  i  am  sure  i  am  going  wrong  somewhere  as  yesterday  one  of  my  cardinal  fishes  died  may  be  because  of  this.
 1>  I  had  kept  the  filter  running  post  pouring  the  medicine  ..  does  having  the  filter  running  create  an  issue  or  should  i  turn  if  off  ?
 2>  Will  all  my  fishes  eventually  die  of  these  disease  ..  Am  really  worried  of  this  
 3>  How  long  should  i  keep  using  this  medicine  to  ensure  all  gets  completely  cured  ..

 Ick  is  a  parasite  in  extreme  case  only  fish  dies,  you  can  run  filter  but  if  you  got  activated  carbon  then  remove  it  while  treating  with  api  ick,  and  better  remove  the  affected  fish  to  some  quarantine   tank,  keeping  water  at  28  degree  will  prevent  spreading,  actually  no  need  any  medication  when  your  water  temperature  is  around  28-30,  once  ick  life  cycle  complete  your  fish  will  become  normal  so  no  worries.  and  already  you  started  using  api  so  just  follow  the  instructions  given.  once  white  spot  is  gone  do  a  50%  water  change.

 Activate  Carbon  is  one  type  of  Filter  Media  (will  be  in  Black  color)  which  we  generally  use  it  in  the  Filter  for  Biological  filtration.

 Ich  cure:
 
 Add  low  doses  of  rock  salt.
 Add  Rid-All  Blue,  or  Merck  Methylene  blue.
 Increase  heater  thermostat  temperature  to  28  degrees.  and  monitor  the  water  temperature.  It  should  be  28  degrees  when  your  heater  switches  off.
 
 Rid-All  Blue,  or  Methylene  blue  will  stop  the  parasite  from  propagating.  This  will  also,  unfortunately  kill  of  the  beneficial  bacteria  in  your  filter.  This  might  cause  ammonia  spikes.  The  salt  addition  partially  protects  the  fish's  gills  from  ammonia  burns.  Watch  out  for  signs  of  stress.  You  will  need  to  do  a  water  change,  with  fresh  water  containing  proportional  doses  of  methylene  blue  and  rock  salt  to  replace  what  you  have  removed.
 
 Since  the  parasite  cannot  propagate,  its  number  will  eventually  decline.  The  increased  temperature  will  cause  its  life  cycle  to  be  quickened  as  well.  This  gets  rid  of  the  parasites  which  survive  the  salt  and  methylene  blue,  but  are  free  floating  or  resting  in  your  substrate.
 
 Of  course  this  cannot  be  done  in  a  planted  tank,  and  methylene  blue  will  stain  any  and  all  decorations,  including  the  air  pipes  and  glass  silicone  joints.
 
 Keep  up  the  treatment  and  temperature  for  3-4  days  even  after  no  white  spots  are  seen,  so  as  to  kill  any  dormant  Ich  parasites  as  well.
 
 Your  tetra  probably  died  as  a  result  of  ammonia  spike  caused  by  the  decline  in  the  filter  bacteria,  which  may  be  due  to  the  API  medication.  I  personally  do  not  like  this  exotic  medication,  since  it  causes  secondary  problems  after  initial  treatment  is  complete.
