They all have white spots all over them, with the majority on the tails. The Gourami is the only one I have not noticed in any Ich on. Please help, I did not see any yesterday and today it looks like its exploded. I use 600 bright floursecent bulbs, a tetra nonadjustable heater, a tetrawhisper filter and air pump. Are my fish going to die????
first thing is first look on the box/bottle of what treatment you have and look for the copper content and post back you are not meant to use these treatments with snails
so rehousing them while you treat the fish is the best bet but do not house them with other fish though as they need upto 24 hours in segregation the ich cant live on snails as i know of but they live in water and can harbor on your snails but they cant live for over 24 hours with no fish as a host
if rehousing them while you treat is a no go then leave them in and you SHOULD be ok i have used ich treatment with my 10 apple snails and had no problems the really harsh treatments like mythlin blue are a BIG no go tho
