First things first.... be patient! One white spot on the tail of one fish is not a reason to add medication to an aquarium. Keep a very close eye on the fish and look for other indications of a parasitical infection. If you actually have ich, you will begin to see scratching behavior and will absolutely see multiple distinct white spots on the fish. Ich looks like salt, sprinkled ALL OVER the fish. A single white spot is meaningless.

That being said, you should always keep a supply of an ich medication on hand. When you have confirmation, you should begin treatment immediately. The exact dosage will depend on the exact species of fish in your aquarium. I personally use Quick Cure, but Nox Ich is also another popular choice.
