Hi tropicana. Sorry to hear you may have some issues going on.

We will need you to provide the numbers to the nitrites and nitrates to insure they don't need tweaked at all. Often the test reads fine when infact it is not.

Next, I am concerned that you don't ever use a water conditioner. This is essential when doing water changes. Do you use one then?

For the white spots, is it ich? Can you do some research for us and look to see if this is what it seems to be. Or does it look like something else?

Thanks, post back soon and we'll see what we can do.

:) We definately need the Nitrite/Nitrate #'s to see the big picture here. Do you have a test kit for those two?

Ick looks like grains of salt or sand sprinkled on your fish-does it look like that ,or just plain flat white spots?
