    I have a Sterbai Corydora that has a growth on both pectoral fins. It looks brownish-white and blends into the fin color. Anybody know what this is a symptom of? I brought some new fish home and ended up contaminating my tank. I have been treating the main tank using Ich Attack. After...

    This is a new fish, I got him two days ago and put him in my 5 gal quarantine and he looked fine from the store, was hunting the extra bloodworms my frog didn't get and was generally healthy the first night, two days later he has white spots on his fin and isn't eating, I had another new betta...

    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...

    (Skip to the bottom for TL;DR version) So I bought a "bristlenose pleco" last night which looked okay from about a foot away, since as far as I can tell spots are part of their normal coloration. My tank is about three months old, so still fairly new, and I decided to just place him in the...

    I have a 15g planted tank with 5 female bettas, 1 sick panda garra, 2 nerites, 2 assassins and a mystery snail. My LFS guy identified through pics that my garra had ich. He recommended Nox-Ich and brought me the bottle. When I got home I noticed that it was actually DeChlor (the price tag was...

    Is this ich? It's on both belly fins of this guppy and looks rather symmetrical for both sides. I can't tell if it's ich or just weird fin plumage. He is with one other guppy and three neon tetras, none of which have any lesions or white spots. All are very active and stuff their little faces...

    Hi everyone! I was hoping if someone can tell me how long Ich can live. I currently have a spacious aquarium that's been running for years that use to have Ich almost a year ago. It use to be a goldfish tank, but the goldfish moved out a long time ago. Currently, I turned it into a planted...

    If some of you are also on aquarium advice, I also posted there but I wanted to compare notes, because I know everyone on this site is especially plant savvy...: Made a mistake and bought some Anacharis from petsmart. Broke it up and put it into 2 tanks (10 gallon). This morning, my 10 gallon...

    I'm not sure what to do with my fish because I'm not exactly sure what they had. I was treating them with Microbe-lift Herbatan and took the carbon out when I originally thought it was ich, but then my fish started to pile up on top of each other on the bottom in the corner of the tank. Their...

    Hey Guys, Really thanks to the community for helping me get my first planted tank setup so far. I had a question since i just introduced fish into my tank and this morning i can see on 2 fish, one white dot on them. I believe this is ICH and i was wondering what the best treatment is for...

    Hey guys. I appear to have a mild case of Ich cropping up in my tank. I have Kribenses, Rummynose Tetra, Emperor Tetra, an Oto, and some Amano shrimp. What would be the best way to treat the Ich without injuring any of the tanks other inhabitants. It seems to mainly be present on the tetras...

    Hi there; I have been observing my tank quite closely as of late. Mostly because my female balloon molly seemed to be forming cotton wool/fungus. So she was placed into containment and treated with medication, while my main tank went under a water change and "all that jazz". My balloon molly is...

    I have a 55 gallon planted tank and it was doing great until I added some plecos to control algae which obviously had ich. I normally quarantine my fish but I didn't with the plecos and I'm really kicking myself for it. I now have a tank with ich. The tank was at 75 degrees and the plants and...

    To start off, I have a 6 gallon fluval edge. In there right now is 4 neon tetras, 5 cherry shrimps, a dwarf onion, dwarf sagittaria, and another plant I forgot the name of. Ok I have 2 problems as of now. The first one is ich. I started using rid ich last night. I lost one of the tetras...

    Hi, In my 10 gallon, my two fancy goldfish have Ich, or what I think to be Ich. The black moor in particular is covered with small white bumps, but both him and my ryukin are laying on the ground (except when food is offered). At least they're still eating. I've treated now twice with Tetra's...

    So, I have a 29 gallon tank that I am trying to plant. It had Cherry barbs three cories and two Farlowella (twig) catfish in it. I think that the second farlowella brought the ich in. I quarantined him for a week, and he was from a trusted local fish store, So i figured he would be ok to go into...

    Today I bought 6 Serpae Tetra(sold as Red Minor Tetra) from Petsmart for a $1 a fish. Got them home, acclimated them by putting the bag in the tank for about 10-15 min, then dumped in about a pint of tank water, let sit for 10-15, another pint in the bag, then 10-15 and netted them into the...

    Hey everyone, A few days ago I purchased a honey gourami from my lfs. I know that they quarantine their fish before they sell them. Anyway, I noticed this little white bit on his dorsal fin the other day and I'm wondering if it's Ich or possibly a scratch (or a bent scale?)? I don't want to...

    Just came home to find my new Rummy Nose with ich. Starting to raise the temp and treated with Aquari-sol after searching forums online. I thought this was the best less toxic and plant safe treatment. I have no shrimp... I know this would kill them. I also have quick cure but after reading how...
