    Hello, I have 4 platies in my tank and I have noticed that 2 of them have developed black spots the size of a pin head. One of them has the spots on top of its head and the other has them near its tail. The one with spots by its tail seems to have faded in color aswell. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Sounds like ammonia burn. Do you know your parameters? How often do you do water chanes?

    I had been away for 2 weeks and when I got back I quickly did a water change. All levels are good including ammonia. I didnt however test the water before doing the water change. Will try to post pics.
