I have a ten gallon tank with a few guppies and some mystery snails,I noticed the guppies are showing
signs of ick.My question is should I remove my snails beffore treating my guppies?I know dwarf frogs dont
do well with medicines,but im not sure about the snails.

Instead of adding meds, slowly increase the temperature to 83F.
Increase it about a degree an hour.
82F is too warm for the free swimming form of the parasite.
This should not bother the snails.

Along with what Dino said do more frequent water changes while the temp is up. Leave the temps up for at least 14 days.
