Yesterday I noticed two cottony spots on my adult picasso pair ( 1.5 yr old) , I thought that it could have been some food stuck to the body, but in the back of my mind I was thinking it could be ick or some kind of fungus.
I saw this morning that the two spots seem to look like some rash and now there are more small/tiny cottony spots.
Now my purple fire fish has one cottony spot. I finally decided to setup a hospital/qt tank.
I always knew that being in this hobby I need to have a hospital/qt tank but I was confident that my fish will not get ich as I will try to keep the best params but some how my fish got it. I still have no clue what caused it.
But finally 2yrs in the hobby I started my hospital/qt tank today. Hopefully they make it through. My strategy is to feed the heck out of the fish to keep it strong to fight it out. If that dosent work then the fish will be moved to the hospital tank.
Share your experience and tips with ich.
