my angle had this white slime. and gave it to my discus. tried maracyde, clout, coppersafe, which worked on the discus, but nothing worked for the angel until i put him in a gallon of water with a hand full of sea salt and double dose of Aquari-sol for an hour or two. then back in the main tank, it cleared up the next day but came back. did it again this time 2 days in a row for two hours, then back in the main tank with enough salt to kill some of my pathos plants. it's been gone finally for 3 weeks and he looks great. replaced the tank water with fresh water since, still lookin good. dont know if it was the aquari-sol or the salt, but it's the only thing that killed it. ph at 6.4, temp at 85F. highly recommend this extended salt "dip"
