    Hi,

    So I bought my first fish online and was looking at the pictures of him when I noticed he was covered in small white dots.(see pic 1)

    However in another picture the glass of his tank has dots on (see pic 2)

    I have ich treatment on hand however I'm not going to quarantine as he is going in the tank on his own when he arrives.

    Is this ich or just the glass?

    Thanks,
    Ethan

    It's hard to tell from these pictures, but maybe they're just micro bubbles? I suspect you'll have to wait until you can inspect him in person to be sure.

    Gills look inflamed in that 1st picture.
    ICH is easy to treat. I'd be more worried about Gill Flukes.
    Those are some hard worms to get rid off.

    Are the worms harmful?
