    I Though it was ich at first but its only one white Bloch, almost a stain although it is bulging a little bit. I wonder what it could be. Any ideas???

    Hi,
    I'm very sorry to hear about your cardinal tetra. Here is a link to a forum that I recently posted links on.
    [h=1]Sick Venustus HELP [/h]I recommend putting it in quarantine and using Melafix.
    Melafix is a antibacterial that can treat cuts, fungus and rot problems.

    Well i cant put him in quarantine (I have no extra room for a tank) sadly but i am using pima-fix which i bought 7/28/14 and i can see its working, what ever was on my fish is going away. He/She is still shoaling and eating and is very active. Hopefully he will recover

    Glad to hear it's working! It is difficult to tell from the picture, but it could always have been a cut or abrasion. Keep an eye out for any more, and if you do see more, take a look around your tank for anything that could be causing it. If it was fungal, well, hopefully your treatment will take care of the entire tank. Good luck!
