Default Curing ick

I had three or four fish in a ninety-two gallon tank, and they got ick, and
I treated it(the tank) with the blue copper compound but I didn't remove
any charcoal. I don't know if my charcoal was old and spent, or if it just
didn't stop the action of the copper sulfate, but the fish very quickly &
very completely recovered. Mike.

I recently had an ick outbreak in my tank and was wondering. If i add kick
ick do i need to take my activated carbon out of my filter? I was told
it will remove all medications from the water.
