I would do another two 50% changes with added salt and see how he progresses.
Maybe cut down to 30% and no salt for a few more days and then down to twice a week.
Use dechlorinator for all new water you add. Missing this risks killing the filter bacteria.

OK Good

I'm using the dechlorinator every 50% change

So in the coming days I will:
Do 50% change next 2 days
then will go with the 30% change without adding salt


and for the water temperature..
its now 31

when should I switch it to the normal (28 c) ?

and He is progressing well right?

Keep the temperature at 31 until all white spots have gone.

I it doesn't cure the fish but speeds up the ich life cycle)
After the last 50% change, if spots remain, you can add a dose of medication.

I'm done from the last 50% change for today
The temp is still 31
I added the dechlorinator and the salt


today the FH is very aggressive and he want to attack any thing in the tank
even when I add water, he want to attack the new water lool

he is better now
I don't think that I see any spots now


I will start do the 30% change tomorrow
any thing else?

Sounds good - no more salt but keep the temperature at 31 for a few more days.

Looks like we caught it in time.

Very Happy
