Default What are some symptoms of ich

Hi, I think ich might be back...AGAIN. I can't see white spots or anything so any way to identify it? Is laying down on something and twitching back up a disease? It's hard to describe.

yes..that could be ich...ich attacks the soft tissues first...very often that means the gills where you can't see it...i would suggest you start treatment right away...
raise temp to at least 84.....do a water change and treat with a good medication...i use Aquari sol but it is no longer made...methylene is not really designed to be an ich treatment...but there are a number of other meds available...
