    Can anyone spot ick in the first video?



    And can you see if there is an improvement in the 2nd video? Would like to know if treatment is working

    I'm so exhausted. The stand is finally done.
    Just need some wood for doors and sides.

    Did 50% water change and the rummy nose act strange they better now. Red is still a biy dull.

    Measure twice cut once :D

    Need some wood to finish the doors and sides. Loving the extra real estate. Now to move the other tank and build another one to take advantage.

    Don't think the organism is Planaria, no triangular head, so it might be ok.

    The oil layer might be a high protein contents in the tank normaly caused by overfeeding. I have the same problem in my 3ft and I'm defnitly not overfeeding there. Only way I can decrease it forming on the surface was to increase surface movement.

    Maby some of the others you've tagged can give some better insight

    Yeah went away but after putting tank on new stand it just got worst.
    All i can do for now is try to get the canister output in a better angle.

    But the organism is bugging me. I had planeria worm before it didn't look like that

    Regarding the surface also give a little time and a few water changes as the tank was recently moved and treated for ick. See from there if it persists after settling a bit.

    What substrate are you using?

    Just normal inert substrate. Reptile fine gravel and aquarium gravel. Got oscomote tabs from march i think. Stop dosing when ick started

    I would personally give it some time to settle. My tank is only now getting back to normal after about a month and regular water changes. The elevated heat and salt put my tank out of balance.
