My 3" common pleco suddenly developed a white bump on his fin. I noticed it yesterday and it has gotten bigger since then. It literally looks like the white head of a pimple. I'm hoping its not ich. Other then the bump he seems healthy. Any ideas?

Welcome to fishlore! Do you have a pic? Some recent rescues of mine had something that sounds similar and they cleared up with a round of Kordon Rid Ich Plus.

thanks for the welcoming . I can't get a clear enough picture of the fish for an example. I'm worried about using chemicals because I have dwarf parrot fry in the tank. So it was ich in your case?

No it wasn't. I think is was a parasite under the fishes skin, causing a pimple of sorts.

I woke up today and it seemed to have gotten smaller. I'm wondering if it was a burn from the heater.

That happened to my gourami one time. It cleared up on it's own. So I don't know really what it was.
