    Hi all just been checking out the tank after the big water change earlier today and noticed my female killifish had a white spot on her back....can anyone tell me what it is? Is it something I need to treat or has she been attacked by another fish?

    Ouch. It almost looks like you fish has a cut or something in the first picture. I would say fungus for the white stuff, because columnaris usually starts on the fins. Whatever you do, observe all the fish closely for signs of it spreading. If you have a spare tank, I'd set it up as a hospital tank until she gets better.
