Ich?

I might have ich not sure.. Does anybody have any pics with their fish with ich? On one of my fish i can see white spots, but he is not flashing. It almost looks like his skin is comming off. But the other fish are flashing a little but no spots or anything. If I do have ich I plan on treating it with hypo. TIA

What do you mean flashing?
Ich looks like grains of salt stuck on the fish.

Can I treat just the fish that has the spots or would I have to treat all the fish?

If its ich you would need to treat all the fish in a separate qt tank and leave the main fishless for at least 6 weeks.

May be ich, but with the skin coming off it sound more like brooklynella or possible velvet.
What kind of fish is it and how long have you had him? Any other symptoms? Is he eating?

Gotta treat them all or he will just catch it again when you return him to the main. For your crew I would consider a trade for a 30 gallon. Would make life easier on you with water quality.
Also with the Lion I would consider a hypo treatment.
