one of my fish is sick,and i did a 100% WC today and added little japanese yellow powder but i wanna know when is the next time i must do a WC??is there any specification saying i have to do a WC after 3days or wad??i cant possibly leave the yellow powder in the water all the time..

WC depends on how long it takes for the water to turn fouled. That's why it is always better to set 1 sick fish to 20litres and above (I am using 1 fish to 40-50 lites now) of water for treatment.

Did you JYP bomb to treat whole tank instead of segregating the sicked fish?

i didnt seperate the sick fish coz no hospital tank and the fish is just having blood patch at the cheek so i thought JYP would do the job..i just put a little only..

Do keep in mind that JYP will affect your filtration. So after this treatment, the BB colony is probably gonna be nearly wiped out and you'll have to do more frequent changes until the filter is cycled again.

will the colour of the water fade after some time?how long will it take?

The colour is not the way to tell if JYP has expended its effectiveness. I also do not know to what extend the BB has been wiped out. So to play safe, change your water more frequently because your filter might not be working as it used to be.

it is true that JYP will "protect" the fish from illness??a lfs owner told me to put JYP everytime i do WC to protect the fish..according to him..and after how many weeks will the JYP expire after u used it..because of the small amount i use,i dont tink i can finish using..i tink the next time i used it would probably be when my fish is sick..
