"Hello, I have a clown loach that I noticed yesterday he has white spots on his tail. From what I can see its only his tail. It does not look like grains of salt its a bit bigger, not raised at all and is flat from what I can tell. Is it possible this little guy has something other than ICH? This same clown loach is much smaller than the siblings that I got at the same time and seems to have from the looks of it a small portion just behind his head sunken in, which resembles skinny disease. He is eating and playing with the others. I cant catch him as his in a 120 gallon tank. Since yesterday I have raised the tank temperature to 86f and added aquarium salt, although thus far I did half the recommended to watch how they react. This morning I did a big water change as usual and added more salt at half dose. Temp still at 86. I also went out and picked up coppersafe after reading this was safe for my all loach and upsidedown catfish tank. Since I noticed a few scrapping against objects I figured its better to treat them all. Now I have had dry levamisole powder on hand for awhile and I am also wondering if its safe to add the Levamisole now or should I wait? I have used the levamisole before, switching between levamisole and kanamycin and once had levamisole flakes which I noticed that 2 of my yoyo loaches rather large bellies went down after feeding the flakes. Levamisole is said to improve the immune system and be 'beneficial'. So my 2 questions are is it possible that the white spots may be any other disease? Is it safe to use the coppersafe with the levamisole so I would be covering internal and external parasites? Thanks"
