Hi,

My platy has a small red bump/spot on his left fin. I think I see a bit white around it, but it's red in the center. He eats normally, there are no other fishes in my 5 gal tank. The water is OK - no ammonia or nitrites. The pH was low today, but I changed about 30% of the water right away.

It doesn't look like fluffy patches. What else it could be?

Thank you so much for your help in advance!

Hi there,
5 gallon is too small for a platy. Any photos I can see?

Looks to be some kind of growth, I would keep up with water changes 50% every two days.
Do some research into finding a medication that could solve this growth, not sure if its bacterial or fungal
