I am concerned he may have Ick. I notice this evening that he had some white spots on his fins and my Plecostomus does also, but he's is worse. The Corys and Chinese Algae Eater seems fine but I'm going to get meds tomorrow just in case. Any suggestions?

Kordon Rid Ich saved my angels. However, I think it isn't recommended for Cory cats. May want to research it before making the purchase.

Thanks. I will do some research fish. I also read that Aquarium Salt can help too, not sure though how much or how long to use it. I need to do some more reading. :(

Bettas do weird things sometimes. How long has he been doing that?

Don't use aquarium salt. I almost lost my angels using that to treat their ich.

PetMania - he's been doing the for a few days. Yesterday is when I noticed he and the Plecostomis has white spots on their bodies. I've only had them for five days so they must have been infected before. My other Betta tank is fine, but I am making sure I don't cross contaminant.

This could be ich. I would go to Wal-Mart and grab some Quick-Cure to treat that. Do not use aquarium salt for this. Yes, AQ Salt has good properties, but I don't recommend using it for everyday treatments.

curbiekym- your male looks like he has ich if you can see it in the pic you posted , i would do what the others suggested and would do 50%-75% water changes twice or once a week

Or you could just raise the temperature to 86-88 degrees... Why use meds if you don't have to?
