Took off today to take my son to school and noticed ich in the 150 gal !!!!! I was so damn careful when handling anything from the loach tank.... None of my fish have ever been sick other than new fish (loaches or the sd's). Capone and dory have it and one sd. Bumping the heat up gradually and will start adding salt 1 tbs per ten gallons through out the day.

What ever is on the sd looks like a pimple

I know but I feel like an idiot i should have known better. Should have washed more thoroughly and should have quarantined the silver dollars.....

I know for a factncapone and dory have it. But is this ich or something else on the sd.

Ich is easy to kill Frank........but do me a favor....take a decent length video of the tank.....I want to get a better look @ those SD's......not sure if that's Ich on them.......might be Ich, maybe blurry exposure from the way they swim, but want to be sure.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Not to scare you Frank, but from the pics those white marks on the SDs look eerily similar to the bacterial infection 2 of my SDs got, in the very beginning stages. It presented as a few small (~1mm diameter) white marks that I assumed were scrapes, but were slightly raised - think a very small white pimple.

I'd really like to see a vid too, and it's definitely my paranoia talking but I'd take the SDs out of the 150gal until you can be 100% they don't have any bacterial issue.

you'll still need to treat your 150 ~ in case there's any ich laying around - but ich can be easily treated. sorry to hear that bud.
