I've been keeping a pretty close check on my tank in the last few days as my catfish has been sick (previous thread). She seems a little better, however I lost a tetra today.
When I looked at the tetra, I thought I saw a white line on her back and one eye was popped out a little. My first thought was maybe columnaris, because of the back. On closer inspection of my remaining tetra, they seem to have white spots on them.
I then noticed what seems to be a few white spots on the tank wall, all the way in the back... when I was trying to get a closer look at that, I noticed all these little specks floating around in the tank? They're everywhere in there! I swear they almost look like they've got little legs or something, but both my mom and boyfriend say they don't see legs.
Is this a very heavy ich problem? I didn't want to treat for ich without double checking if you can see it in the water sometimes, or if this might be a different issue entirely. I have a medicine called Ich Attack right now that I could use at half dose if I need to treat immediately... and I can go out and buy something else more safe for catfish tonight or tomorrow, if I need to. Petstore is probably closed at this point, or closing very soon, so only WalMart would be open and they don't have the biggest selection.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
