my froggy passed away and now i fear my angels got ich. she had a bad experience with some dwarf puffers and they ate some of her fin. now the tips of her fins look like their covered in a white film. also theres a whit ball like cluster hanging from one of the wounds. theres two yeast like spots on her fins as well. none of the other fish have it on them . what should i do how do i know what it is?

Two Items

1) IMHO the symptoms which you are observing are not Ich.

2a) Dose with Melafix as indicated on the directions.

2b) I you have activated carbon in you filtration process remove it before dosing with Melafix.

ok did a quick serch on melafix i see it derives from melaluca oil. i happen to have some of that stuff actually a lot pure melaluca oil can i drip some of that in the tank instead. i understand that it is all natural but potent stuff i might try one drop. will it hurt my fish, shrimp, frog combo?

External problems.

If the Melafix does not improve the condition in two days other folks will need to provide input as to other potential remedies.

No I do not unfortunately.

I had an angel get stuck in a rock hole and in extricating him he lost some scales, fins and skin.

Some gurus said to try Melafix before trying anything else which I did.

A few eruptions appeared on his skin but went away in several days and he completely healed in about two weeks (I dosed with Melafix for one week).

(BTW this is the only medication which I have used in my one year of fish keeping so I am of no help beyond this point).

It shouldn't but don't try overdosing it.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
