my clown knife is very active and is eating well, but it has some patches that I am worried about being fungus. But...they do not appear to be getting worse and look more shiny silver than white, almost as if this is just a dis-colorization than a problem. It is not covering his entire body, it is isolated in one area and is pretty much the same on both sides.

Question is, should I treat it to be sure or just watch it for awhile longer?

And also, can fungus be treated in a planted tank with damaging the plants? I once stupidly treated a tank for ick....and had less thna desirable results. :-[



thanks
Jim

Fungus looks like fluffy patches of cotton on your fish. Check the diseas list and see if it looks like something else. If you can post a picture, that might help us also.

Looks like typical minor dings and scrapes that a lot of larger fish get.

If anything changes, let us know.
