    Remove infected fish and treat in separate tank if you have one.
    Velvet is a tough one good luck.

    If it is actually velvet, you'll have to remove and treat them immediately. It often kills fast...hours rather than days. Easy to confuse with whitespot and Brooklynella though, so be sure you know what it is so that you have the right treatment.

    Difficult unless you've seen both in person. They're both dust-like with much smaller spots than whitespot. Brook tends to make fish slime a lot and the fins get tattered.
