Little white spots

I have a false nemo fish that when I came home this morning and turned the lights on in the tank, had a whole bunch of little white spots on him he didnt have before I left for work. So I thought, shoot, is that Ick (spelling?). So I went to sleep and just woke up and it's all gone like it was never there. What the heck was that?

It most likely was ich. It will gourge on the fish and then fall off to the substrate and over 200 little ones called tomites will come from each parasite. You`ll probably see it with a vengence over the next few days. Read this
