I QT'ed both fish that had multiple spots.

Then I only had one fish with one spot.
I added the salt and the spot is gone.
If it's ich free for a while I would consider
adding a couple new fish.

The QT is a different story, two fish still have
spots and want it ich free for a weeks before
moving any fish from there.

One angel in QT has three spots at edges of

When ich falls off does it leave a white
blemish or would it be something else?

The tank with salt already has no spots on fish.
The QT with "green" still has spots on two fish.
Any pics of the angel's spots?

It's hard to see if ich leaves a blemish. I don't bother looking at that since my naked eyes can't figure that out anyway.

Continue 10 days treatment after ich disappears though.

I posted this in disease forum also.

I want to switch from blue meds to salt.

I am not sure about this guy but there
is one angel with two ich spots.

What do you think?

Thanks.

Maybe it's only me but they look barely like ich to me. Hard to say as they're blurry. Doesn't hurt to dose salt. I'd go for it.

( The angel with 2 spots and the angel in the photo are in the 46 )

It's been 10 days of salt in the 72 gal.
( Missed water change on 2 days, Got busy )

No spots. Spot free for a while. Cool...

The color of the snakeskin gourami and pleco is a little off.
I am thinking I should remove 1/2 the salt today.
What do you think?
