Hey guys, I suspect my fish have ich, not completely sure. I will try to get some photos/videos however my fish are extremely fast. I have tried medication to no avail so i bought some aquarium salt. Fortunately my fish have never been ill before so i have never actually used salt so i will need quite a clear guide if someone will. All the symptoms below they have actually had for quite a while and i can't seem to get rid of them. I know this tank is a bit small so i am thinking of getting a bigger one to make it more manageable for myself and more space for the fish. Thanks in advance aha.
