Ok, My red tailed black shark is covered with ick, my platy has like 3 little spots on his fin, i bought some medication and some aquarium salt, i just did it yesterday and as soon as i got home i treated the tank, it hasnt helped yet but hopefully within the next week it will be clearing up, any ideas on what else i can do? I dont want to lose my buddies

Turn up the tank temp to 84 over the course of a few hours....

This is the song that never ends...

White spot disease. Check my sticky in Freshwater Diseases section so you will know what disease to expect with your fish.

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!
I stand in awe of my body.
