Hello All! I've had great success with my freshwater tank so far 38g, until I got the new arrivals it seems.
4xLongfin Rosy Barb
2x Opaline Gourami
5-6x Zebra Danio
The Pictus are my latest and last arrivals, been home about 2 weeks now, noticed no odd behaviours from them at all, eating well, playing nice. Tank sits at 78 degrees, I check the tank thoroughly everyday, never seen a problem.
UNTIL TONIGHT!! It's feeding time, I go to feed them their nightly brine shrimp and my word I have never seen so many white spots on a fish, 3/4 of my Pictus are Completely infested with what seems to be Ich, my neon tetras are exhibiting the same on their tail fins, so far the Gourami , danios, and shark are all clear. I've also noticed a bit of white dotting on the glass, upon further examination it sways with the water, I can't make it out to be any organism. Also, the plants I've gotten with the no snail promise, so much for that.. Found 3 in my cave while inspecting one of the pictus!!!
What I'm wondering is what method most successful for treating ich. I have a bottle of QuICK Cure, i also have aquarium salt on hand. Any help would be great!!
---Inspected my 10g betta tank aswell, fish are completely fine, no odd behaviour but the same white things are on the walls, and more so in this tank harder to see though w/o a backdrop on it, they seem to be many particles fit together, in almost a domed shape. The chances of that happening in two seperate tanks can't be high. Might be something in my water?
