so, Chappy, the HMPK dragon/marble i raised from a month-old fry, has been kinda down lately. she's not been nearly as active as she usually is, preferring to hide in her plants than swim about. i thought it was Cup stressing her, since their tanks are next to each other and i realized the DVD separating them was moved over a bit. i pulled her tank out from it's corner to examine her(a common thing for me to do), and i saw...... something. it's clearish-white(my eyes are pretty bad, so probably white), but i can't tell if it's ick, or something far more sinister. i can't get photos, because my camera's horrid, and out of batteries, but i still need help! should i treat her with the ick meds i have, or what? D: Chappy's my baby, the only living creature i've ever got to raise from a baby by myself, and she means more to me than any of my bettas(she's on par with how much Ichi means to me). i did a 100% water change just now, and moved her plants about to give her a place to hide away from. but... i don't know what to do from here. i don't want to treat her with meds she doesn't need, but i can't tell if it's ick, columnaris, or something else on her. should i treat her with aquarium salt? it's...... all i have, other than ick meds, and parasite meds.
