Appreciate the reply. Obviously if i see more than 1 pop up we’ve got an issue ... but if this is gone tomorrow, could be in the clear?Could be Ich or just a grain of sand (or some other debris) stuck to his mucous coat. I would just wait & see over one white dot.
So the spot is gone today (maybe 2 days total it was on there) but there’s definitely an area where the spot was that looks a little discolored or almost irritated. Then i saw this this am on my Foxface. Should i be worried about my system now, or could this again be a piece of sand or floating debris getting stuck to him too and I’m overreacting and looking too hard into them?Yes; Ich trophonts would last on a fish for a minimum of 3 days.
Absolutely. Anything else other than white spots that i should be on the lookout for? All fish seem to be fine and eating wellRabbitfish do have a very thick mucous coat which easily traps debris, but I would start keeping a very close eye on all your other fish.
So although none of those symptoms are happening yet, unfortunately it looks like my purple has ich. The white spots have multiplied. Obvious next step is to try and get him outta the main tank and into qt? I have GC and Prazi on hand, I’m guessing Copper should be the next thing i pick up ... any other recommendations would be greatly appreciatedScratching, head twitching, heavy breathing, lethargy, swimming into the flow of a powerhead.
I would treat with either copper or chloroquine in a QT. Unfortunately, ALL the fish need to be treated and the DT itself should be left fallow (fishless) for 76 days.So although none of those symptoms are happening yet, unfortunately it looks like my purple has ich.

I would start with copper, and observe for a few days to see if the white stringy poo remains continuous.Question i have is what treatment plan should i start - dose the qt’s with GC (or Prazi) then follow up in 5-7 days with another, followed by 30 days of Copper Power?
Well, you can technically food soak General Cure with copper to take care of the internal issues. But let’s be sure that is actually needed by seeing if the white stringy poo remains a consistent thing.Ok Copper first, gotcha. Is that to treat the possible ich and knock that out first, then worry about intestinal issues?
