The ich seems to be gone but i think i have a new problem. The fish have a whitish powder on them. Im pretty sure its not ich, but i cant get a picture because its hard enough just to see it myself. Any ideas on what it is and how to treat?

Make sure your parameters are in check, Ammonia & Nitrite. Sometimes the fish will lose their color when in hypo or the salinity is way too looooowwww. I forgot but are you using a refractometer? Do you have a power head, filter etc in the QT?

I checked the parameters. The ammonia had a tiny bit so i did a nice big water change. i dont have a power head but the filter moves the water around pretty good. Tey arent really losing color as much as they just got a little bit of powdery white stuff on them. Its not very noticeable however they are twitching and rubbing the walls and ground alot. I dont have a refractometer and i have no way to get one in the near future but i have a glass hydrometer. Since its the best i can do for now.

From the looks of that picture i would say they dont have that. Its not as dense and more like dust. It looks like ich only the spots are really small. So i dont think it is that. however i could be wrong
