I have only ever gotten it from new fish from the shop, never any other way, it is highly infectious.

Well from what i've read and experaniced you get it from adding lower temp water into your tank then what is in there. the lower the temp the more the out break of ich and ick. coopersafe does a good job of removing and preventing it, but only use as instructed. also ick guard works well to.

the cause of ich or "white spot" is from Ciliate prozoans (Ichthypphthirius)
.... however this is one the easiest to detect and to treat
