ICK!!!

Hi guys,

I made a post last week about changing substrates to flourite. This weekend I performed the change and everything seemed to go okay. About 24 hours after the change I noticed that 1 of the 2 clowns had ick. I bought some ick treatment....."Quick Cure" by "Aquarium Products" immediately and administered 1/2 the recommended dosage (1 drop per gallon). I have a 30 gallon tank so I put in 15 drops. The directions say to treat daily with a max of 3 treatments. If further treatment is needed I must do a 25% water change. I have dosed each day, today being the 3rd dosage. The ick has gotten worse, from just a few spots on his tail to all over his body, now the other clown has it and 1 of the 3 Yoyos that I have now has it also. Please help with recommendations as how to help these guys out....

Thanks =)

Lance

ps. I began treatment on monday, have treated on tuesday and now wednesday
