Unfortunately very little. If u can get them out and treat them in a quarantine do it. As for any other livestock in the tank..just hope they are strong enough to fight it off. Run a uv if u have one...and most importantly stop buying from petco...seems the norm from them.

Are you sure its ich? Are you talking about that one dot on its fin? Or are there mutiple tiny dots on its body?

Do you have other fish in the tank?
