I have a CPO crayfish in a 20 gallon tank, look in my aquarium details for more information. I just found ich in my tank but I am starting to treat it and everyone looks fine so far. This has been on my crayfish for a couple of days now. It is on both sides. Please help me. What is it? What can I do to help him?

Thats known as white spot syndrome for which there is no cure, if I'm right the little guy won't be with you long

Hi richiep. I am in no way calling you out, I just got curious and researched the topic really quick. According to an website which I am linking, crayfish do not exhibit the visible symptoms of white spot syndrome. They display lethargy, but nothing more. Have your experiences been different? I just got curious, that's all.

No problem DanielZebra32798 you have all the right to question. The information you are reading is from 2007 its taken me a while to find information I referred to dated 2019 so sorry for not getting back quicker, these symptoms only appear on dwarf crayfish from what I believe

Thank you, that was an informative read, I'll definitely use it as a resource as well. To the OP, I'm really sorry about your crayfish, I wish something could be done.
