Does my new black Moore have ich...?

WagglePets

I’m so sorry guys who suggested I wait on getting a goldfish I just couldn’t help myself... anyways I just got this guy from petsmart and I have white sand but I noticed some white specks on him and im wondering if it’s ich... I have ich x by the way If it is that.

1.will ich x kill benefitial bacteria? as I do not have a qt tank
2. Will it stain my silicone?
3.how hot should I make the tank since hes a goldfish?
4.how long do I have the heat up (if I have to) and dose meds?

****THE “ICH” IS ON HIS BODY****

It does kind of look like ich.
You can use ichX without changing the water temp. It will not stain anything, I don't think it kills benificial bacteria, It did not efffect my tank cycle when I used it.

Are any of the white dots on the fins?
Btw, the heat method is 10 days at 86 - 87 degrees.

I don’t think its on his fins I cant really tell
I just checked the fish and there’s no white spots so I’m assuming it was just sand... hehe....sorry
ORRRRR does that mean they just are going through there life cycle
And one more thing I’m not trying to argue I’m just very cautious I read from multiple sources ich x stains your tank so should I get a tub And put a extra filter from my other tank in there and treat there? Then what about the main tank will they just get infected all over again? I hope this makes sense
