I have a 55 gallon ciclid tank (no live plants) and two of my peacocks have these black pinhead size dots on them. They look like ich but they are black. I first noticed them around their mouth. I'm not sure what it is exactly but its got to be a parasite. The fish are swimming at the top, they have ripped clamped fins and they occasionally rub up against the rock pile. This is a well established tank and I have not added anything to the tank in months. The water parameters have not changed. I checked my 5 other aquariums and all my fish are fine (for now). Anyone have to deal with this before? I have some aquarium salt I've never used can I treat with that? If so how much do I add and how often? I really really really don't want to have to dye my tank blue!!!!!!!!!
