Not from the picture. Is the spot raised and/or different texture from the surrounding area? If this is the only spot, and no other fish have it, then it could be natural and nothing to worry about.Abby said:Do you have any idea what it could be?
That's good to know, could it be damage of some kind? It's very roundshiftyfox said:No doesn't look like it, I had it in a tank about 15 years ago - generally looks like small grains of salt and all over the fish not just one spot.
I don't think it's raised and all other fish look fine, this one is behaving normally too. Managed to get a couple more pics but it's impossible to get a good one as it doesn't stop moving!ken31cay said:
Nitrite & ammonia 0, nitrate either 10 or 20 (I can never tell the difference) . Will salt damage plants?ken31cay said:What are your water parameters - nitrate, nitrite, ammonia. I would keep nitrate below 10ppm by doing extra water changes and keeping filter media more clean. If that doesn't help then I would add table salt to the tank 1 tablespoon per ten gallons of water for 5-7 days and look for improvement in the fish. If the affected area is indeed fungus and worsens or spreads to other fish then I would treat with Kanaplex as a last option after first doing the above.
