uh oh, dark spot

    One of my zebra danios (the largest one, I've had it for 2 months), has a small dark circle on its bottomside. About in the middle. Any ideas?

    Oh - I hope everything's okay! I'm not really sure what it could be. Is it like a dark red or more black? Is it fuzzy or does it look like scales are missing? Is it by the anal fin? Does you fish seem affected at all?

    :;hug2 I hope it's no big deal!

    black/gray, perfectly round. doesn't look fuzzy, more like a skin discloration. and it is right in the middle of the belly.

    Is there a heater in the tank? Is it possible that fishie bumped the heater and got burned? Or is there a small tube or decoration that would cause a wound that size and shape?

    gravid spot maybe? could it be a female ready to spawn?

    thanks for the responses, everyone. There is a heater, maybe a burn? ??? I don't know what a gravid spot looks like, I'll look online for pics.
