    It depends on how long you had them in the FW. Most likely they will IME. I'm sorry to hear you got such bad advise.

    I think they will be fine! Just put them back in your main system and see how it goes. I definetly think your red lice is gone though! :) Good Luck and keep us updated! Pictures are good!!! :)

    Depends, how long were they in the FW? certainly not the recommended treatment but a quick dip won't likely mean instant death either.

    10 seconds hardly counts as a dip lol. Dips tend to be measured in minutes, not seconds.
