When you say scratching alot and revealing themselves to ICH, does that mean they currently have ICH???

Its normal for Ps to scratch themselves. But if you notice that they frequently do this more than usual, I would examine the fins and bodies closely just to see if ICH has or is forming.

Sorry i think you must of misunderstood me, Like they are itchy and scratching themselves. i can't see no signs what so ever on them as to having ich. The same as when you want someone to scratch your back!
Maybe they just want me to show them some love and affection, and that is there way for asking for a back rub!

What are your water parameters? On my first tank, I put the p's in before cycling
and they would scratch occassionally. Once the tank cycled they quit doing it.

piranhas will scratch themselves repedivly due to hardness of water. check your ph and water conditions.
