    Guessing you got ich? but 5mm doesn't sound right? Got pics?
    ICH is usually like salt sprinkled on your fish, at least that's how it looks like!

    Bump the temperature up a little. You can get some ich cure, but I would just bump up the temperature, add a bit of salt.

    Unhappy White 5mm dots

    How can I get these white 5mm dots off my mixed and neon tetra that just seemed to appear, the 10 gallon tank is about 74 degrees and has only been set up for two weeks but the fish have been in for only one week

    bump it up to 81 or 82! Becuz it'll cause the ich to mature quickly.
    The adults will turn free swimming and leave the fish, this is when you want to medicate the tank that'll destroy the eggs. Or add salt...

    Btw, got pics? It's hard to know what it is... cuz I'm only ASSUMING it's ich!



    This was pulled off from google.. does it look like this or much bigger?

    Then you got Ich if it looks like that!
    Bump up the temperature and put in some ich cure! well, at least that's what I would do. Unless u got a UV sterillizer, that'll work too =)
