    Exclamation please help, ICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    0 Not allowed!
    yesterday i was checking up on my fish when i saw one neon tetra with a single white dot on him. i thought it was a missing scale
    i continued to check up on things when i saw one of my oto with white dots all over him.
    so i bumped my temp from 26 to 29.
    all other fish have no white spots
    then i started to wonder, is it really ick since only one fish is really infected.
    so i have no idea how to tell if it is really ick.
    and if it is should i buy treatment (i don't want to because i heard it treats ick but makes a lot more problems)
    also my water quality is very good.
    anything else i should do.
    i will post a pic asap

    Not a useful pic at all.

    These white dots... Does it look like salt was shaken on the fish? If so, It's Ich.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    What isn't going to be a problem
    And also I spent 2 hours a day looking at the tank and I can't spot aggression at all
    Everyday

    Vafa, everyone here is saying that it is from the stress caused by the Gourami in the tank and I agree with them as well. That should really be a hint of what to do.
