    My betta has had these two white spots (strangely, almost symmetrical) on his head for at least 5 days, likely more. The one on his left side seems to be embedded, while the one on his right side is sticking into the water a bit. He is eating fine but is sticking to the top of the tank a lot...

    I have a 10 gallon tank that has been running since February 2020. We started out with 2 Leopard Guppy males. They have been our sole inhabitants for all this time. I am diligent with water testing and changes. All levels are standard and the tank has been very healthy. Temp and chemistry...

    Can the white dots be CO2 bubbles instead of Ich? I apologize in advance for the lack of pictures. I have a 90gal, CO2 injected, planted community tank. I bought 3 Irian Red Rainbows 3 weeks ago. (no quarantine at the time) I noticed they had lip rot and treated with MelaFix. That took care...

    Hi there! I have a tank with 6 peppered cory catfish, a betta, some snails, and some shrimp. I also have lots of live plants. I'm a newer aquarium keeper, and noticed a few white specks on my betta. When I asked my much more experienced friend to take a look at him, she confirmed it was an...

    New to aquariums. I recently got neon tetras, 9, of them to a 20-gallon long tank. Water tested perfectly. One male tetra seems to be territorial guarding half of my tank and not letting any other tetras come near it. He does not school with the rest of them. After feeding them today, I saw that...

    Recently I bought four german blue rams from my LFS, when I picked them up I bought a better heater and had done my research. I wasn't surprised when one of them contracted ich, i then proceeded to raise the temperature from 86 to 90 to help kill off the ich. I noticed while doing that, that one...

    Hello! I noticed a white spot near my Cory's tail last night and am trying to identify the problem. I believe it looks larger than ich. It is slightly raised and does not appear to be fuzzy. The fish is acting completely normal and has no other spots. I see no signs of disease on any of her...

    I have a 125 DENSELY planted dirt tank, inverts, and fish with beautiful specs. I noticed some white spots on one of this fish. Immediately started the temp up to 86 and dosed with Paragard. It doesn't seem to be working. As five days later my Bosemani looks like he and is girlfriend have been...

    Hey everyone, I started my aquarium about four months ago, and everything has been going great until a few weeks ago. I have (had) two German blue rams, 15 Cardinal tetra's and 5 Otocinclus. It all started with one of my tetra's getting white spot. I treated with Esha exit, but to no avail...

    Hello! I have a 29 gal tank that has been through an ich/ick outbreak. I treated the tank with a solution containing; Formaldehyde & Malachite Green. Multiple treatments were required to remedy the disease, and I lost some fish along the way. The surviving fish has been moved into a new tank...

    Hi! Hopefully I'm posting this in the right place because I'm new here. We have a 10 gallon freshwater aqaurium that just killed a few fish due to pesky Ich. The parasite clearly came from PetSmart when we brought in 3 new neon tetra to add to our collection of the other 3 tetra (totaling 6)...

    After 3 long days of work and generally not seeing or doing anything with my tank, today I found that the majority of my cardinal tetras have ich. Surprisingly, the other fish in the aquarium appear to not have any signs. I immediately moved all of the cardinals into a 5gallon quarantine with an...

    Hey all, Just this morning I noticed the first signs of ich on my cardinal tetras. They had been infected two weeks previously and I attempted to treat it with ich attack (it appeared effective for a week), but it seems I may have stopped treatment to soon. My question is, can I combat the...

    3 days ago I realized 1 of my neons looked like a porcupine. I removed him and did my best to save him in a hospital tank, be died. Then yesterday found another dead neon and another one today. I did a very large water change. And all water parameters are normal. My fish do look like they have...

    I'm just looking for advice on treating my yoyo loaches with Ich. They're in a tank with glass shrimp and Fundulus Cingulatus. I'm in the process of raising the temp to 86F right now. I'm also assuming that my other 3 tanks may be infected as I do water changes using the same buckets. After a...

    I brought home 4 new ember tetras earlier in the week, and just noticed one of them has developed ich. I properly acclimated them, and didn't add any of their water to my tank, but... These things happen. I just have 1 35L/9.2g and no hospital/quarantine tank. This one fish has been spazzy and...
