I have a 90 g aquarium with 5 fancy goldfish and a pleco. Yesterday, I woke up and saw that one of my goldfish has white spots on its tail. I read all the symptoms of ich. He seems to be actong just the same, swiming around actively, doesn't grasp for oxygen and seems to be breathing quite fine, active same as usual. Today I notices another white spot on another goldfish. Is it ich? What should I do? Which medication do you recommend. I've had these fish for 3 months already and maintain regular water changes.

Ich Fish Disease

Heat is the generally best answer, but it requires high temps to really speed up the life cycle if ICH. I don’t know who the goldfish specialists are to page them... very pretty fish!

There is a goldfish sub-forum where a search might turn up an answer?

Unfortunately 2 min ago one of my goldfish died. he didnt even had white spots at all. He seemed happy until yesterday while doing a water change he just stayed at the bottom, this morning he just stayed at the top. After i fed them, he past away. What could this be? Also ick? Can it be something else. The other goldfish with the spots is now recovering, the white spots have disappeared.

Eta: his vent seemed pinkish red, mostly red and also the parts where the fins connected to the body were red. I've inspected all the other fish and they're all fine.

maybe you could get one that looked exactly like it and your toddler would never notice it? but that's just replacing the old fish, and that's rude

Thank you. I will just try my best to explain it to him. I'll ask him if he wants to choose another fish. If not, we'll just leave it how it is.

It turned out it was velvet. My whole tank past away. Except for my pleco. He's still as happy as could be. I tried treating it, but it was too late.
