    One of my sunburst wag male platy has a little white spot on his body. Is it a wound? Its defenitely not Ich. Doesn't seems to be fungus either.

    Hello Man...

    If you're particular about the chemistry of the tank water and by this I mean you remove and replace a lot of the tank water regularly, then I wouldn't fret over what is very likely a small injury that's healing or a harmless blemish on the fish's skin.

    Keeping the fish healthy is all about keeping their tank water free of dissolved wastes. A healthy fish being infected with something is very remote. However, if you're not a good water keeper, and you keep stressed fish, then there could be a number of things that can infect the fish. Which type of fish keeper are you?

    I have 14 platys and live plants in my 45 gallon tank. My water parameters are just perfect and I do regular water change every week. All other fishes are doing fine. Not sure how this injury has happened.
