Unhappy Help QUICK!!

I woke up this morning to a dead bloodfin tetra with little creatures all over it. Theyre like dark brown little dots, that are running around, and there definently alive. Many of my snails are dying too. But my neon tetras seem to have ich?? WHATS GOING ON??

Help me, right now im running to LFS to get any medication that seems to be able to cure this... I think its a mix of some kind of parasite and ich.....

My Tanks:
20 Gallon Community Tank
5 Gallon Guppy and Fry tank

SOON TO COME!!
A 55-75 gallon tank, hopefully

*Remember, its not how big a tank is, its how hard you worked on that small tank.

I've never seen the brown whatever, but if it is a parasite (from your description) and ich is certainly a parasite, the best is a general parasitic medication called Aquari-Sol. It is safe for even sensitive fish. I use nothing else.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

kk, ill use that next time, i was so scared that i ran to LFS, got saltwater, and some general parisitic medication. I already dipped all the fish in the saltwater and then treated the tank.

Sounds like a small scale horror flick. I would have done the same thing (freak out - run to store).

Ewwwwwww.................

Good luck getting rid of the little buggers.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
