Hi mellowr - the green things - do they look like this?

If so then it's fish lice which you will have to pull off with tweezers.... but will wait until you post back.

On the ich - if you raise the salinity to 0.3% over 24 hours and then raise the temp to 80deg - it should help destroy those nasty critters.... depending on the ich cycle, they can appear to get worse before they're all destroyed so perseverence is key.

Please post back soon :)

If you could help us out, could you answer the questions in the big white

box at the top of the page. This helps determine what may be causing

some of the problems.

Here's a link to a reply I did for ich:

The fish lice you'll want to remove from your fish, they are bad.

Here's a link the the treatment section for fish lice:

i dun have those tests so unfortunetly i cant tell u those but i change roughly 1/10 of the water everyday with the 0.3% of salt and the fish dont seem to have any abnormal behaviour & i feed them hikari gold 1 time per day. also i use stress time when changing the water. 4 the fish lice is there any other way 2 remove them?? can salt kill them?? can it b used in conjunction with the salt?
