Does this look like Ich?

Recommended Posts

HI Guys

Little Bosco has some odd white spots that have appeared out of nowhere, none of my other two fish are affected.

I did move some anubias into the tank (forgetting to bleach treat them, stupidly) that had been in quarantine with some Ramshorn Snails,

and these snails (and the shrimp they live with) have been in contact with other fish int the past.

* Ammonia Tank - 0

* Nitrites Tank - 0

* Nitrates Tank - 5

* Tap - no readings for Ammonia, Nitrate or Nitrite

* Ph is around 7.5 for both tap and tank

* 20 Degrees C Temperature

* 220 litre tank, Fluval 305 external Canister with charcoal, various sponges, floss, glass and ceramic media

* Four occupants in total, all under a year and generally quite small

* 25 - 50 % WCs per week

* Water conditioned with Seachem Prime

It doesn't look like ick. :). It looks like he might have scratched himself on something. Could I have a picture of the entire tank?

I'm not so sure it isn't ich, Derek. Is there any chance you could get a clearer picture? You have a QT tank and regular salt, right, in case the Mods want you to salt him?

I have fought Ich more than once and I have to agree I don't think that it is. But like stated some clearer pics would be nice. Also if you could get one clear close up we might be able to see exactly what it is better. My "guess" would be external parasites of some sort. but that is just a guess.

A video would also be great if you are unable to get more clearer pictures

Derek, given that the pics are a bit blurry, it's hard for me to be able to tell if this has the characteristic raised grains of salt appearance. I would definitely like some other pics, or a video.

I would agree strongly with Susanne's assessments. I don't know that it's ich, but I also definitely don't know that it's not.

I agree it's hard to tell from the still shots a video would be of great help to confirm :)

Hi all, sorry for not getting back to this. I have been away from the internet for a while. I think Mikey was right, whatever it was healed up in about five days.
