Ember Tetras - Is this Ich?


Recommended Posts

I’ve had larger fish with ich, so it was easier to tell that it was ich. But my ember tetras are so small  and have larger white spots on 2 out of 10 of their heads. Is this ich? Do I go ahead and treat it? Just making sure before I put the Aquarium Salt in. I had a really tough time getting good photos, sorry.


10gallon, 74 degrees, frog bit and pearl weed up top, feeding 3x per week frozen foods, 1 beta fish and 10 ember tetras. Tank is like 4 months old. 


Should I change the water less? I’m currently changing it 1x per week with 30% water change plus gravel vac. Am I stressing my fish out too much with too frequent water changes? Maybe go down to 1 water change every 2 weeks?
