after looking at my fishes again, i still don't see the white spots on the body but the tail and fins are getting worse.

Could it be fin rot/columnaris? If it is, will salt fix it as well? Will salt kill my plants?

*** Update ***

The 5 Fishes that we're infected have already died, including the dwarf puffer.

The remaining 5 Rummynose and 2 Glowlights have started showing symptoms of infections and confirmed to be Ich.

Will my plants die if i use the salt method?

Sorry about your loss!

Your sure its ich then? I doubt it would be fin rot, that usually starts off with ripped or tattered fins, not spots.

If you are following the salt treatment as on that link I provided then it will not have any negative effects on the plants.

yeah im definitely sure this time. I've found the spots on my rummynose, and the same tail infection on the glowlights.

thanks for the advice again.
