Hi Guys,
I have a 20 Gallon tank, with 4 goldfish. I just got them about a week ago. I added a little bit of API aquarium salt to the tank/ as the didn’t look great when I purchased.
The next day 2 of the fish have white spots all over them. Prior to adding the aquarium salt there was no spots. Tested my water with the API test kit and ammonia, ph, nitrate and nitrites were all at idea levels.
Not sure if this is ich, a fungus or some other disease.
