Ich update

Background info: started treating with regular (old) maracide on Tuesday. Had enough left over for Tuesday night's treatment and, as I later discovered, half of Wednesday night's treatment. Thursday I ran to the lfs to find out the new maracide was the only one available. That one has a different formula and you only use it on days 1, 3, 5, so on Thursday morning I dosed with it. Today is Saturday, and I'll give treatment for day 3 (or 4 depending on how you're counting... :) ) after they finish breakfast. All 7 clowns were out and about this morning and there is no sign of ich on them. The plants and the shrimp seem ok too, so this new med seems safe for them (that's what the lfs lady said). So far so good, keep your fins crossed!
