    Today I noticed white or off white stuff on one of my platys. It looks like it's color has faded and I did not think it was ich. On the other hand another Platy has a white spot that looks like a grain of salt and much like ich.

    If it is ich should I do a water change and add stress coat or add ich meds?

    The pictures are of the first Platy. The best I could do

    if the first pic is a grain if salt, then it could be ich. The second pic looks like a scrape. Does it like a cotton tuft in the second pic?

    Both pics are of the same fish. The first fish listed in the post. Will post the other fish later. Change 40%-50% of water once every two weeks.

    This is what I found on one of my platys ( fish in the 2 pictures). On another Platy (no picture shown) I saw a white dot the size of a grain of salt on it. Will post a picture of both fish tonight.
