Oh no Riley!

AGH! I just noticed Riley has just a white dot on his upper fin. I cannot get a clear picture of it yet but can ich show up on fins instead of the body?

Ich can show up on the rest of the body and fins too I would start by adding some aquarium salt and raising the temperature to. I wouldnt medicate yet but thats my opinion but I would get some just in case. If it spreads start using it. Best of luck.

Yep that's ich.

I'd just leave him for a day. Most of the time for me the ich disappears as quickly as it appears without me doing anything. I wait a day or two, and if it is looking worse, then I start doing stuff to cure it.
