  1. Does my betta have Ich?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies

  2. Help, is this ick? Spots on head

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Overnight (probably), some light spots appeared on Reggie's head. My first thoughts were ick, but it doesn't look like ick to me. They aren't salt-sized, they aren't even that white.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Story time! Alright, first off, I made the stupid choice of purchasing an African Dwarf Frog from Petco. I asked the person assisting me if the tanks had already been treated for Ich/Ick and other diseases. He said yes. He lied. I brought the frog home, adjusted it to the tank water and let...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My young betta has just come down with ick - which isn't at all surprising.
