Hey, I recently posted this exact thread to the "diseases" category, and got no answers. Maybe you guys can help me out.

I recently just started my removed
(click the bold letters)
You might have to zoom in to see it.
Also, I did a flash light check to see if its velvet, but it doesn't really look all that gold. It looks like an off white.
Right now I put her in a temporary 0.5 gallon tank just in case it is ich, I don't want it spreading to the other fish.

Is that ich? If so, how should I treat her? What medicine? Be specific as possible please!
Thanks!

Hello!

If I'm looking at the photo correctly, are you referencing the tiny white dots on her head? If so, I will offer as much help as I can!

If it is ich I think your doing the right thing by putting her in a quarantine tank. It sort of does look like ich but I would wait and see before giving her treatment.

Yeah, I'm referring to those white dots on her head.

Ok! It seems to possibly be the onset of ich, but in early stages. Treating with aquarium salt (.25 tsp) can help initially. Increase the temp and add aeration (less o2 at high temps). Keeping water clean is the key. If it gets really bad and you HAVE to pull out the guns (is, meds) there is a method floating around that is proving to actually cure ick. I've added the link . Keep updating!
