Sounds like Ich . . . or Ick . .
Be sure the temperature is up. (hope you have a heater)

Remove the carbon (small Black stuff) from your filter before you attempt to treat this disease with your chemical.

It should indicate to repeat the treatment after 5 days if the ich spots are still there.

Turn up the heat to 82F

Good Luck

If left untreated, it could be fatal.

Just treat it as instructed.

Ich is a water born disease that thrives in low temperatures and bad water quality. You should do regular water changes from now on.

Change about 25% once a week. Be sure not to clean out the whole tank as this will result in the reduction of vital bacteria
