To give u an idea of the tank it's a 28 gal bowfront with 2 merineland 150 penguin bioweel filters. A merineland led night/day lamp double bright. In the tank I have some fake plants as well as some plastic rock formations.

Now for what's living in it lol

- 2 ferns
- 1 seeweed looking stuff (can't remember name)
- 1 moss ball
- 2 fancy angel fish
- 3 black phantom tetras
- 2 rummy nose tetras
- 2 mollies
- 1 sword tail

Also here is a few pic's as good as I could get them

Perhaps you could be more specific... what does this 'stuff' look like? Specks? cotton? What color is it? Where is it at?

Is it that white spot near its tail? I can't tell whether thats some sort of speck on the glass, or the problem. If it's the problem, it looks to be fungal, but could also be some sort of bacterial infection from a wound.

I can't really tell from the pics... are you referring to the mark near the tail? If so, it very well could be fungus. Unless you're seeing white spots, I would rule out Ich.

Either way, Ich-Attack is a really good med to use for treating both Ich and fungus. If you believe that it's fungus, just follow the instructions on the bottle, remove any carbon from your filter media and do NOT increase the temp, (high temps could make the fungus worse).

Follow Lumpy's advise. follow the instructions on the Ich Attack (don't be fooled and buy another commercial brand promising miracles) and keep the tank water very clean.

Also, watch for aggression between the angels.
