Thanks for any help guys.
Now that youa re saying they ar eon the fish then it is Ich. You have to buy special medication like neenjar said. Also raise the termperature of the water to about 80 because Ic will actually get off the fish to go reproduce if the water is warm enough and the medication will then kill it.
Important" Like neenjar said I would keep up with treatments for a few weeks, possibly a month. Use the dosage the bottle says. Ich is annoying to get rid of and make sur eif you have other fish that if you handle ANYTHING in this tank that you wash your hands thoroughly under warm water before touching the next tank!
