I have just added a chemical to clear my WHITE SPOT and i have to add more in four day.
How long before the water clears.

What chemical did you use and what are the instructions for use?

it sounds like you used something with methalyne (spelling) blue - fungus clear or parasite clear? when you're done with using the medicine (4 days after the last dose), you can put carbon back in your filter (new carbon) and do a 25% partial water change. the blue should clear out before too long, depending on the strength of your filter and size of your tank.

Often meds with methylene blue in it will stain the silicone that holds your tank together blue. If it does it doesn't mean anything is wrong.

It's kind of a your-call thing to do the 2nd dose. if you feel there's a good chance any fin rot is still in your fish, then do the 2nd dose but if you think they just need to regrow fins, then put in new AC after a PWC and treat their water with Novaqua+ or Stresscoat and add vitachem if you can. with clean water & love, the fins will grow back. Good luck with them.
