So, I went to check on Ryu today again before going to get ick meds and make sure he hadnt gotten worse or anything and noticed that what i originally believed to be ick had...changed.
Now the little white dot is greyish white and is no more a ball, but now like a small straight...thing starting from the top of his gill and going up.
I looked at the deases sticky for more help on what this may be and came up with columnaris, externail parasites, fungal infection, and Ick (still not ruling it out completely). I have no idea what to do or what to treat for now. What do you all think? Any help would be great!
