Ick What next?
 
I have 2 osars that have ick. What do I need to do? I have both fish in a 90g.

Look in the fish diseases section here.
Not sure how Oscars react to salt - one remedy is to add slat and elevate the tank temperature, otherwise you will need to purchase medicine and medicate as per the manufacturers directions.

i have had the most luck with raising the temp to about 82-84 and doing salt....within a week the ick should be gone are nearly gone.
