I've lately been seeing some white specs on my guppies. It's ich, right? Well, i've been thinking about making that tank a home for my betta instead of the guppies, but this ich just ruined everything. I see little specks in the water, too. No cloudiness, but if you look really closely, you can see particles. When I stir the gravel, specks come out too. I want to make that tank my betta's. But there is the ich. I don't have enough money for some sort of medication right now. I heard that rising the temperature will kill the ich. Is that true? If I get the guppies to another tank and put my betta in, will my betta get the ich? And the filter. There's gotta be some ich in there too, right? Or should I just wash the whole tank and filter out with hot water and start over or something? Is ich deadly? Can it kill a fish? It's a 2 gallon...
