Hello all,

I am beginner to fish keeping, I have purchased a fish tank with some silver dollare and am not sure if they have ich or not, can someone please claroy for me. Confused? Please see pics below
You typically see ick on the fins from what I know. I’ve seen tank with silver dollars that have that same speckle so I don’t think it is ick. Also how large is your tank and what is your current stocking?

It looks shiny in the picture, ich is like salt. Not shiny just pure bright white. So unless it looks like salt on the fins and body I don’t think it is ich. Any time I’ve seen ich on a fish it first shows on the fins. Body is usually the last place to show it in my experience.
