Please ignore the small particles in the water. I was filling the tank with a hose, which was kicking up the substrate, when the Apisto came right up against the glass.
Both my Apisto's now have what look like miniature grains of rice on their caudal fins. I'm thinking this is too big and well 'rice shaped' to be Itch.
The other one has one on his caudal fin, and as you can see the second has two.
I noticed this on Monday when I got my lights back.
The rice shape can be seen on both sides of the fish, leading me to think it's internal / under the skin.
Then a few days ago I noticed a small white patch on my second Apisto (see photo), it's on his body, bellow the back of his dorsal fin.
I'm not sure if these two issues are related? What do you think?
