How long does it take eradicate ich

Hello,

I have few fishes with ich outbreak. I put them in cupramine 0.5mg/l. I test everyday using the salifert CU test kit. How long does it take for ich spots to go away? They have been in cupramine for 16 days and I still see ich spots.

thanks,

21-30 days.

I would MeToo them in there for a month to be sure.

I have couple more questions.

1. When should I expect the white spots to disappear?
2. I wasn't sure I had Ich or velvet. Give that I have not lost any fish in 16 days, can I rule out the velvet?
