    Hello! I'm not sure if this is the correct place to put this, so please let me know if I should move to a different part of the forum :) About a month ago my betta Mickey came down with what I thought was ich, so I treated him consistently with Ich-x and did water changes and all that.

No problem there - he seems to be settling in slowly.   About ½hr ago I noticed in the 60L tank that there was a...
