My convict Elijah, has a small white spot on his left side. Yesterday he was sluggish and swimming sideways; kinda more floating. To solvent this, I'm cranking up the heat in small increments to get the fish assimilated. I'm also adding a tablespoon of aquarium salt every hour until I reach 4 for 20 gallons. Is there anything else I should be doing, I really don't want to loose the little guy as he's by far my favorite fish as he has so much personality. He attacks the glass everytime he sees me walk towards it, and he eats cichlid sticks out of my hand!

Ohh, I also took out some water as then my hang on the back filter will create more water agitation.

add a few days after the spot is gone, as the ick lives free swimming for a time.
