Ich question for Nikki

I'm in my 6th day with Maracide.

The two Otos never had any cysts. One of the Black Neons didn't either.

The other two Neons only had maybe half a dozen, and the total count on the two of them now is one.

The small Clown has only had one or two and now has one.

But the larger Clown who has always had many now has dozens and is for the first time starting to act lethargic.

If the cysts only live on the fish for two to four days, and I've treated for six, that means that the Maracide was not killing the spores during the first two days. If it was, there wouldn't be any left.

Is that logic correct? Or am I missing something?

My temp is 82.
