I noticed this morning one of my cherry barbs looked sick. Shes sitting on the bottom breathing heavily and has poor color. I don't think she will make it through the day honestly. I then took a closer look at the other fish (platies and cherries) and there are a few white spots to be seen.

I'm thinking to go with the temperature increase method. I have plants so I don't want to do salt, and the medicine is not without its drawbacks as well. I'll keep updated with how it goes. I don't know what I can do for my sick fish though, I'm just assuming the ich is what's making her sick though oddly I don't see any spots on her in particular. Water quality is all good.

As expected, lost that fish.

Temperature is up to 86 on my old thermometer. I bought a second one which reads 88. Took about 10 hours to heat up from 78. I added another air pump hooked to a 5" stone for more oxygen.

There's only one or two spots on 3 out of my 5 remaining fish. Hopefully I caught it early enough.
