Clogged Filter Intake

I noticed a couple of days ago one of my Yellow Tail Aceis had a couple of white spots on its body. I of course was concerned right away, but wasnt convinced it was ich just yet. But there were other signs of it (multiple fish flashing (though some of this is normal) etc. Anyway today the 1 fish in question has more white spots, and also 1 of the spots looks like a tiny thread hanging from its body, so... Here we go. I have already started the process of slowly heating up the aquarium (125 gallo...
