Ich confirmation
I was able to get these pictures of my pleco with what I think is Ich. He even has the little white dots on his eyes. I just wanted to make sure that it is infact Ich.

Number 3 is the best shot dp0350 and its possible, does it look like tiny grains on salt ?

Yest it does. But all over almost like the fish were snowed on.

Your looking at Ich by the sounds of than matey, what else is in the tank ?

tank mates
Leporinus, african pike, yellow labid. I am having some cycling issues, I purchased the tank used and must have cleaned it a little too well. My water parameters are 1ppm ammonia, a little over 0ppm Nitrite and 10ppm Nitrate. I boosted the temp to 84 and added salt about a day ago. I do have a UVS running now. I got it last night.

Be careful adding salt to your tank! Plecos tend to be rather sensitive. Too much salt could kill the little guy.
