    Hello all,

    I recently got a school of 6 dwarf neon rainbows for my 38 gallon tank and a few days after being added, I noticed one of my males had what I assumed to be ich. You can see the three white dots on his tail-fin. So I started to dose the tank with Cupramine in hopes of catching it early before it killed my tank. However, I just finished the first full week of the full treatment dosage and nothing has changed. Those dots have not left the rainbow and I haven't noticed anything on any of my other inhabitants. I just wanted some help in determining if this is actually ich or if it is taking a while for the spores to fall off. Any suggestions for what I should do moving forward would be appreciated. Thanks!

    That looks to be just damaged fin rays. The copper would have killed any parasites. Probably no worries.
