it won't go away
three weeks ago i brought a peacock bass, and a few days later it got white spot, the thing is only one other fish has caught it. also i have been doin the treatment since i noticed it and it just wont go. what do i do.

on the first day i put 100 drops, and on the second and third i put 50 drops. i then stop untill a week later. i dont wont to put anymore in because i dont want to over dose the tank.

Maybe you could try the salt and heat method... but I don't know how to start that, maybe someone else can help explain it. Although I don't know if your type of fish can have salt..

What kind of medication are you using. Anything that contains malachite green should work well.
