    White marks are getting multiplied. And even many times Platies are moving and eat they spend more time at the gravel and seem very weak. How long will it take before something good starts happening?

    The fish don't feel well, that's why they are inactive.
    How long have you had the heat at a steady 86F? It generally takes 5 - 7 days for the spots to all drop off.
    You must remember that ich generally starts in the gills and we don't see it. Once it appears on the body, the protozoan is well established and can be lethal. I hope it's not the case, but you may still lose some fish to this horrible bug.
    Fingers crossed that all will go well.

    It has been 2 days with the heat at 26F, so we have to wait and see... :-(

    Thank you my friend. I noticed that when they stay still at the gravel for a long time then suddenly they start moving fast and scratch on the glass, plants, gravel. Maybe they gather power to do that and get rid of the spots?

    I suspect it's more like they are weakened from the condition but the parasites get so uncomfortable, they try to scratch them off.
    Again, hoping for the best.

    What you are describing is "flashing" - it's what fish do when they are irritated - they will do it even when you don't see any spots on them but that's a sign that something is not right.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

    Hi, this behavior appeared when Ich spots appeared. So i hope they stop doing that when Ich goes away.
