Not sure what this is?
At first I was pretty sure it was ich... I treated with quICK cure like I have done in the past if one of my tanks got ich, and it cleared it about 2 days like the package says... Well not this time, I have been dosing for a week now (the past couple days double dosing) and it is not gone. It doesnt seem to be getting any worse but not better. Now I am thinking its not ich... Is there any disease that looks exactly like ich but isnt ich? I think my neons gave it to the tank (the ones that all died). I am treating my betta and 2 ottos.

Pictures would help methinks....Who is "General Failure" and why is he reading my hard drive?

Some strains of ich are resistant to the medications used to fight it. It's possible that it is ich but the medication just isn't working this time. You may have to do the heat/salt technique.300 gallon mega tank: build in progress

I will try to get some later, but if you know what ich looks like, it looks exactly like it.
