Does it look like sugar? - if it does it is "white spot" and can be treated with medication, but remember to half the dose because piranhas have sensative thin scales or something.

if they are large white blotches then it could be slime desiese - again this needs medication.

do you have a pic?

I would do a 30% water change as it is always a good idea when you have an ill fish.

If it is Ich, that is how I cleared it up. I added salt and uped the temp 4 degrees F. I dont know the conversion to C. I would wait for a final word on what it is before taking any drastic action.

Oh you meant RAGE!!


Good Luck with your Ps. You should have a hospt tank just in case of these emergencies. Dont really wanna infect all your other fish. Do your water change to try and help reduce the spread. Good Luck man!!!

it does not have anything to do with your water quaity..your fish might have stress out from the travel and new enviroment change.your temp is way too high.they were probably in a way coolerwater system before you added them to your tank..also the hotter the water the less oxygen it contains..so lower it alittle..i say keep it around 80-82.lower your temp and add some salt..hopefully they make it..and remeber if this is your plant tank do add chemicals you will only burn them...

up the temp because ich dont do well in high temps (82 degree and up). water change ( 50%) every other day. add salt after every water change and take out your carbon from your media. do no stress the fish and maybe no feeding it for a couple of days. turn off the lights also. those are the steps i do to fight ich. after a week or so they should disapear. you fish may also no move much due to the temperature rise.
