My rainbow shark has been less active today mainly staying around the bottom corner of the tank
I’ve noticed these white dots on him

can anyonehelp?
I can't really see the dots, but if its just one day it might be just one of those days. Rainbow sharks are most active with the lights off anyway. The dots may be ick but in my experience it takes a lot more than 3 dots for fish to start showing symptoms.

Oh I just noticed you said these white dots instead of three white dots haha It looks like they're just on the tail but maybe my vision is bad. If you suspect it's ick, use the salt + heat method (they can handle it) and that'll clear it up. Better to tackle it now.
