I have a Pseudotropheus crabro and he has a single white spot about the size of a pea right by his tail. :eek: All other fish seem to be fine. He is eating and other fish are breeding so I don't know what could be wrong. Will try and post a picture later... I was thinking it might just be a battle scar from a battle over territory. :-?

If there are no other signs of anything being wrong, I wouldn't be overly concerned about it.

Is it raised, like a pimple? Any redness around it?

No redness just one white spot... it does look like a pimple... weird. Doesn't seem to bother him at all... I don't know. I still haven't mastered pictures of fish so I can't get a good shot of it.

It could be anchor worm, but that is usually red around the edges, and they tend to flash a bit with it.

I would just keep a close eye on things. Should you see any other areas on this fish or any of the others, you may want to treat with something like Jungle Parasite Clear.

If it's anchor worm, it's already in the flesh of the fish, not free in the water column, so no, I don't think it would help at this point.
