Default Ich or Parasite On My Fish

My fish have this white large round white dots on them. Not all of them
just some. If I rub them they fall off. They also rub againt the items
in the pond. I dont think its ich cause there large. Some have 1 some
have about 5-6. The 1 pacu now has 2 on its top fin. Is it a parasite?
They are white roundish and can also get thicker. Is there a all perpose
medication for this case? The pet store has them on one of the fish I
bought from them and they dont even know or wont tell me. Now what?

======================
Anchor worm? It sounds like a parasite but it's hard to tell which one by
your description.

They are white and the size of a large pin head. About 1/16 of a inch or
a little larger. Round in size. Thank you

===========================
They certainly sound like some kind of parasite. Now you need to find out
how to eradicate them from your pond or quarantine tank. I hope someone
with more knowledge of parasites can help you.

When I buy new fish I always quarantine them for at least 21 days. I
learned the hard way how difficult and expensive treating fish in a pond can
be. Not to mention the fact new fish can infest healthy ones you already
own. Good luck.....

#How about dumping a bottle of clorax in the pond? that will kill all
parasite.
