Issue with my Bolivian Ram

Valleriani

Hello!

I have a Bolivian Ram. I've had her for about 6 months now. She has always had this white spot on her back, it's always been fairly large but it looks a little larger now then when I had her. It also looks like it's bulging a little more.

She still eats fine, does normal routine fine/etc. Nothing wrong with her bar that issue. My girlfriend things its fungal but I would of thought that 6 months with a fungal infection would of been growing a lot more, not sure. All the other fish are fine. Params are at 10/0/0, PH 7, Temp is about 24.5.

What do people think this is?

That does look like fungus. Its feeding on the dead tissue destroyed either by an injury or bacteria.

Hmm what would you suggest I use/do? I have a hospital tank and I'll move her there but what's the best treatment here?

If it's just an injury based problem, clean water & good nutrition should eventually clear it up.
Bacterial infections are much more difficult to cure if at all.
You might try API Pimafix. It's an herbal anti fungal.

I do water changes weekly and the params never change. She's had it for about 6 months so probably not an injury I think by now otherwise should be getting better!

I will take a look at that, thanks!
