Hi

Years ago I had tropical fish. Last September I started another aquarium this time I had African Cichlid. I was advised to over stock as some of them were territoril, this I did now I have about 7 left they are very fasinating to watch. They pick the sand in their mouths and spit it out in a different area. Then about 6 weeks ago I invested in a aquiverse 160 a beautiful tank as I wanted a peaceful tank I have 8 different species of tetra 2 bengal loac and 2 sail fin plecos very small als 12 Amino shimps. We had an awful amount of green hair algae so I stripped plants plastic and 2 little caves, thoroughly rinsed them and the filter and placed them back into the tank. I purchased some green hair algae remover when I came down in the morning the algae was even worse. I washed the plastic plants again and soaked them in a bowl with a drop of the treatment in the water. When I came down there now is white spot on some of my tetras. What is the best treatment to use.

Something like seachem paraguard is effective, although any meds with new fish is a risk. Imo the heat method (second link) is better when white spot infection is caught early.
