    55 Gallon Tank Only 2 fish present with ICH?

    You can see the white spots on the little fuy in the center. I can't get a picture of my BN pleco because it doesn't show on pics due to him being albino. I will continue to dose full strength now. LFS had me dosing slightly less because of the tetras.
