PostSubject: White spots on fish fins   Fri Mar 29, 2013 12:36 pm

Hi all, my tank is relatively new (5 weeks) and I have 1 angel fish, 2 GBR's, 3 Cory cats, 3 platys, 1 krib and 10 rummy noses. I started noticing a few white spots on the fins of my angel and the gbr... Is this something to be worried about? I have a white sand substrate and the water has a few white particles floating around.

Also my tank is a 29 gallon. It's been a week since I added the rummys and nothing else after. I do water changes once in 3 days 20%.... Diet is blood worms and tetra flakes

If they have white spots and are scratching themselves on objects in the tank, or if the fins are staying folded up, or breathing looks faster than normal, then they may have ick or a similar ecto-parasite infection.
