I just recently put a filter cartridge from a tank with ich in a bucket of declorinated water. How long does it take for the ich to not be on the filter pad anymore?

I assume it's not a disposable cartridge just a pad? But at least a week is generally a good start with high temps and a pinch of salt

Do you have a small filter you can hook on the bucket?

why didn't you just leave the filter pad in the filter and treat the tank with heat?

if you ever get whitespot in your tank again, just do a 90% water change and complete gravel clean, then raise the water temperature to 30C (86F) and keep it there for 2 weeks. It will kill the parasites and you won't need chemicals.

Just make sure you remove any chlorine/ chloramine before adding any new water to the tank, and increase the aeration to maximise the oxygen levels.
