Yeah that's Ich. You can do the heat and salt. I used Rid Ich + a while ago and it worked great

It's a natural remedy but Rid Ich + is stronger. I would raise your temp to 88-89 and follow the directions.

Yes you need to continue WC's as usual and whatever the directions say

No. Don't do WC's everyday. When fish have Ich they are stressed. You don't need to stress him out anymore by doing daily WC's. Your normal WC schedule will be fine. Read and follow the directions on the Ich Attack precisly. Most of the time just temperature increase and time will cure the Ich unless the fish is too far gone. Salt?? I'd be really reluctant to add salt based on the tolerance of the species in the tank. OS.

If I'm mistaken you have plants correct? Then salt isn't a good idea. Also the higher the temperature the less oxygen will be available so make sure there is good surface agitation or add a bubbler

Still has the spots. Treated for the second day and heat is at 82-86 degrees . I should keep this up for about two weeks right? My water change is on Sunday. Also, is this contagious between fish?

Now the ram is breathing heavily and his face is turing a very dark orange. Any ideas. I'm continuing to dose kordon ich attack daily and will do a big water change on sunday.

The spots appear to be dissapearing, they must've fell off and starting multiplying. Must've sped up the process from 86 degree tank.
