Ick is a parasite, not limited to any one species of fish. Here's a link that might shed some light on the subject.

Brief overview of ick. Ick is a parasite that is always present in the water in a dormant state. It is made active by bacterial overload or rapid water temperature changes (+ or - 2 degrees in 24 hour period).
