Ich

I noticed Ich had developed on my 2 clown loach 5 days ago. They are still very active not scratching against anything or seemingly scared or distressed........

Straight away I purchased some anti-whitespot (suitable for clown loach) and gave the correct dosage, I also increased the temp in the tank to 82 degrees. I then gave a second dosage of the treatment yesterday but the white spot hasn't disappeared as yet.

I have read that the white spot's drop off and burst producing tiny parasites. Is this when I can expect the treatment to take affect.
