White spots disease?

  • How do you get rid of the white spots disease that your fish have? What things have you tried that have worked? What have you tried that didn't work? What treatment works best?

  • Exactly as Gilbert said - white spots normally means Ich - in some cases however, it can be other things. If you could take a photo it would help to identify it better.

    A friend of mine who's been into fish breeding for 20 years now suggested making use of salt, permanganate or copper sulfate for treating Ich.

  • White spot disease is a fatal disease. It's better to treat them at the early signs. Isolate the fish and provide 7 day anti fungal and antibiotic course for the infected fish. Also flush out the 80% of the water in the main tank and add fresh water with aquailibrium salt to inhibit the spread of the parasites and to aid the immune system of the fishes in the main tank.

  • White spots on your fish are definitely ich and it is something that can happen without you even doing anything to cause it.

    Did you manage to get rid of the white spots? It's always difficult to find a way that works so that you don't reinfect other fish in the tank but there are always ways that it can be achieved.
