It's not unusual for a new aquarium owner to get through the start-up process, only to have their fish suddenly break out in tiny white spots. They've then found found out that those innocuous looking spots were actually a parasite known as Ick, and it can kill their fish
in no time at all. Often, that's the point at which the discouraged fish owner gives up. Before that happens to you, educate yourself. Knowing how to recognize and treat disease will allow you to conquer it before it kills your fish. Better yet, knowing how to prevent Ick will keep you from ever having to do battle with it in the first place.
