So yesterday was the 84th day of being fallow - I bought 3 black balloon mollies.
2 I put in my DT to check for ich and 1 I put in my hospital tank just to make sure nothing in there aswell.

my question is how long do I leave the mollies in to check for ich so I can put my fish back.

It’s been 5 days and I can’t see any white spots on the mollies - even in my hospital tank which I was 96% sure there’s ich still in there; the mollie is clear and happy.
IS IT TIME TO PUT MY FISH BACK INTO DT IM SO EXCITED ITS BEEN SOOOOOOOO LONG

Leave the mollies in forever. Free food and they eat algae.
Ofc il leave them in, but I’m saying am I ready to add my normal fish back seeing as it’s been 5 days and there’s no signs of ich in the mollies - so unlikely that ich lives in my tank?
