Unhappy Im late... :(

Its a little late. I had a sorority and now i dont, on two of the 6 females i saw that they were getting white dots on there bodies and becoming less active so, i cupped them and had them floating, they died in the next morning and it looked like one had mold or something on it? Once they died i immediatly cleaned the tank but within 3 days my entire sorority had died same way as the first 2. Does anyone know what might have happened?

I'm so sorry for your loss, helms. :( Were the white dots very small, like grains of salt? Or were they larger, like blotches of white that was maybe a little cottony or whispy?

I'm so sorry for that loss sudden ones like that are heart breaking when you don't know what's going on. It sounds like you had an ich attack.

I second Arashi-chan. Unfortunately, you did have a bad ich attack. The next time you see symptoms similar to that, quarantine the fish immediately in a tank that you can heat. You will want to treat ich by adding 3 tsp of aquarium salt per gallon to the tank and raising the heat (gradually) to 86 degrees F. Do daily water changes to remove the ich parasites that fall off. When you no longer see any white spots on the fish, continue the treatment for another 3 days and then stop. You're cured.
