    The chin and cheek spots are gone! The light just came on so I could check.

    The only spots left on anyones face look like 2 symmetrical nostrils. Do DPs have a "nose" that would be visible? Is that what's visible in the link I posted #17?

    I know I need to continue the heat treatment for the full two weeks to kill any unattached ich, but do I need to leave the temp quite as high? I raised it to 88* yesterday because of the lack of results at 86*.

    Glad they are gone - like i said, ich is the best case scenario. Leave it the way it is and finish the 2 weeks at 88.

    Yes, what i saw in the pic you linked was a nose flap

    Hurray! Just nose flaps now. Should the 2 wks be counted from when I first raised the heat, or from when the heat did the trick? (I'm on day 10 of the initial heat increase, day 2 of heat level that did the trick)

    You've got 12 days to go.
