Hmm... Look at PetSmart or walmart for some ich meds as a precautionary measure. Ich is also called ick or white spot.

Also, turn the heater up to 82+ if possible as that will kill the ich. It may take a week or 2 though.

Turning the temp up to at least 86 will clear the fish of ich within about 5 days. Leaving it up for another week will ensure that all the stages of the parasite are dead. People get ich in 82 degree water - it really needs to be higher than that. I use 88.
