Each white spot is an encysted parasite. Symptoms of Ick may include tiny white dots, flashing, lethargy, and labored breathing.

Make sure to change 25% of the water before adding any new dose, and to prevent secondary bacterial infections, use a fungal control product following treatment. Do not overdose.
