    Ick can apprear anywhere on a fish

    So can most other parasites. Is the fish showing any odd behavior, like flashing ?

    Try to post a pic if you can.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I do not know what it is but my cell phone will not allow me to upload photos to this forum, that's all I have right now, but it would be difficult to get a good close up, shes always on the move, but it looks like cloudy whit spot about a quarter of a inch across, thats why it looks like a scratch, but with ich should there be bumps. i just treated the pack right now my 80gal QT tank is still cycling, or id take her out. What are sgins of body ich next to ich around there gills an mouth because thats the only kind ive delt with. and I'm sure you guys are familiar with the Pacu but there color is a dark smoke black, (to get some refrence of the color. and I'm sorry for the inconvenience of no photo
