Ick is one of those fish ailments that you need to treat all fish in the exposed tank. The ick parasite only lives a part of its life on your fish where you can see it, the rest of the time it is in your tank. Also it often hides in the fish's gills.

Try to fit in a few extra partial water changes and gravel siphonings during the treatment as this will help to reduce the overall numbers of the parasite in your tank.

The ick article, (linked below) has just about everything you need to know about ick. Check it out. 8)
