Hi all

my prize Lwanda peacock has got something on his face. I’ve only noticed this today, he is still active and swimming as normal and eating. Is this something to be concerned about?
It looks white and possibly scaling skin like.

It looks more like pits or pitting to me, can you verify it it's on the surface or below the surface of the face?

It’s on the face….like broken scales I guess. One things for sure it was not there yesterday.

Kind of looks like he’s been in a battle or two.
His pectoral fins are in bad shape and I think his dorsal fin is missing a chunk as well. Stress coat sounds like a good idea. But you may need to move him or whom ever he’s fighting with.
