Hi, i noticed that in my tank, my 2 silver dollars, 3 out of 5 corys and 1 ram has a gold dust coating, though it isnt so obvious on the ram...at first thought, i suspected that it was velvet and monitered their behaviour closely as i did not have a velvet med then, but now after 2 days, im begining to wonder if it is velvet as the fishes that have the gold dust coating are eating well, active and are not flicking or rubbing against objects, the only symptom they have that match with velvet is the gold dust coating...what should i do?

ammonia:0ppm
nitrite:0ppm
nitrate:10ppm

Carry on treating for velvet, they may not have got to the flicking and rubbing stage. Sometimes fish with velvet suddenly appear more active, darting up and down the tank as if they're playing.

Velvet far worse than whitespot it can takes longer to treat.
Don't forget to increase aeration with the high temp and med.
Good luck.
