10 Gallon Tank Does my glofish has the ich?

Helix101

So one of my glofish has these spots and I don’t know if they are related to the ich or are something else. If they are I need help as I don’t know how to treat it, thanks.
I have the medication for him but I rather wait for now/ Also the cartridge I use I cannot get the carbon out without breaking it. I will show a pic, my filter is one of those that uses the bio wheel in it

Yeah it looks like ich. You can try raising the temp (slowly over the course of a week) to about 80f.
Aquarium salt might also kill the ich

I don't have salt BUT I have super ick cure which I added the ammount it told me to. I did a small insition inside the filter to take the carbon out. At the moment I raised the temperature from 78 to 80. The little guy looks fine so hopefully the med helps.

Ok so the little green guy looks better to me. (Temperature is around 82 to 83) I added the second dose of the ich cure and in 48 hours I will replace my filter. I also got some salt just in case what do you guys think?

Continue the ich medication until the package tells you to stop. Ich is a parasite and there may be eggs that need to be killed off. The last thing you want is medication resistant ich.
Glad they're doing better

Yes the white spots are decreasing. I agree finish the whole course what the ich treatment tells you it's better to be safe than sorry. You appear to of caught this early enough to just do the simple treatment and all is gone, you were very observant and a caring fish owner. It really does pay off to catch these things early.....Get better soon lil fishy ❤️‍

Thanks! I will update on Tuesday with the final results. If it doesn’t look like it got rid of the problem I will use the aquarium salt I bought and slightly increase the temperature.

Also what do you recommend if the treatment is over and I still see some dots on my fish? I have the salt just in case (Also he shows no side effects before and now, he is actually the most active tbh lol) For now I see like only one or two small dots so I am not sure if it is still the ich.

Ok done, changed filters, will be lowering the temperature little by little, how do you guys see him? I only see a small spot but nothing else, should I apply salt?

I only mentioned salt at the beginning because some countries it's hard to get fish medications (without a vet's diagnosis).
Since the medication is working you don't need to add salt.

Ok, sadly one of my fishes passed, I doubt it was the ich. Maybe the treatment was too much for the little fella, everyone else is fine. Now I have four glofish tetras. I don’t know if that is a large enough group for schooling
