Is this Ich?

Hi

Does ich have 2 segments?

These are super tiny and ton of them on the glass.
They are moving around on the glass.

I have seachem paraguard if this is bad unless I need something else.

They are good. Lucky it is not ick!

You won't see ick anywhere except on your fish. Even then, it is sometimes hard to see. The easiest way to see it on a fish is to look at the transparent side fins. If they are splotchy, you likely have ick.
