Picture of ICK and treatment link
When you see the white spots, the ick has already entered the fishes body and what you are seeing is the shell of the ick. Well, read the link. That will tell more.
Here is what ick looks like. Shows clearly on tail fins.

Thanks for all of that Hobbs. Yeah i know alot of people do not know what that is and what it looks like. Like my nanny had NO IDEA that she had ick and i went and looked at her tank for about 2 minutes an di am like 'yeah you have ick'.....yeah but it seems to show up on the tail ALOT easier than on any other spot on the body.

Silver Dollars is really hard unless you spot it on the tail fin. They are naturally sparklie and look like they have ick when they don't.

Today I'm going to Wally World and get some Jungle Labs ICK OUT drop in pellets. I find those work just as well if not better than some of these high priced meds they come out with. And no guessing on the dosage.
With all the salt in the tank and with using that liquid med, they are still covered this morning and IMO the ick should have dropped off by now. One neon didn't make it and 2 more are in very bad shape. Swimming about but so heavy with the ick they can hardly keep up. Drives me nuts. I want to grab the fish and scrap the ick off myself. :)
Forget the Jungle Labs. Tetra's can't tolerate it nor can the coreys. Will have to wait it out.
