    Theoden has had a lighter area above his right eye since I got him December 1st. It's gotten progressively lighter. It's now progressed to appearing to be raised and looking "fluffy." It's not ick and is only in this one area. I read up on Columnaris and it seems that he could have one of the slow growing strains of it. I could use more opinions before I treat him.

    His tank parameters have always been good with ammonia around 0 and the nitrates <20 He is acting normal and eating well.

    If he does have it, do I need to remove the inverts and/or the plants for treatment?

    Here's the best photos I could get of him. http://imgur.com/a/x4twS
