I noticed that my 2 catfish in my cichlid tank have ick on them. I have purchased a treatment called Super Ick Cure from API, but since i have babies in the tank, i was wondering if i would need to take them out before i treat the tank, or if i am able to leave them in there. Please help.

If you can isolate the cats do it.

Treat them as the meds direct for a scaleless fish, and then treat the main tank with salt and heat to kill off any living cysts and tryphonts in the main tank.

After about two weeks or so, do water changes to remove the salt and reintroduce the cats after that is done.
