I'm new to all this posting etc.
Could someone please help tell me what this is on my plec please.

Worst case scenario, Oodinium - Velvet.
Need to provide more information about your set up & the pictured Pleco.

Tropical tank .pleco barbs and silver shark. Tested water and all seems ok on readings.
Please excuse me as I'm not sure what to put. ?
Thanks for reply

Is the Pleco a new addition, or any new fish introduced into the tank?
 

Ruck

The pleco was introduced two weeks ago.

Were the yellow spots on the Pleco when you bought him & are the lumps on top as well as the belly?
 

Ruck

No lumps when I bought the plec I just checked a picture. Past 24 hours I seen it at surface of water and just now noticed the yellow spots.
I have Aquacare general tonic.
Will this help.

Copper Sulfate is the most effective med against Oodinium.
Coppersafe or Cupramine.
If Aquacare tonic treats external parasites, it might work.

I will put some in tonight as it's all I have until the morning.
I've raised the temperature as well + turned the lights off.
Hope it works but I will get what you have recommended.
Thank you for helping me.

IMO, Cupramine is the best choice. Hope things get better soon.

Many thanks I will update soon as
