I have 10 adult angels in 55gl. Water parameters are ph7.4, ammonia 0, nitrites 0, and nitrates at 10. Recently my fish have been flashing off tank ornaments. No signs of ick at all. 2 of them have the smallest amount of what looks like cotton on their tentacles. Its so small I cant get a good pic of it to show yall. Im not sure if they might have flukes or some sort of fungus. Or could it be bacterial? Any ideas?

The first sign of Ick is fish itching them self on the stuff around the tank. I would think the Ick its just starting.

They have been itching for over a week now. Thats why I suspected flukes. But I will keep an eye on them. Would daily water changes and vac the gravel maybe help? Couldnt hurt anything right?
