    I noticed a white spot on one of my red headed geophagus today. Not sure if it's ich or not looks bigger to me.

    Not sure if I should remove him from the tank and put in a bucket with a heater and a bubbler to stop whatever it is from spreading 20170406_224442.jpg20170406_224433.jpg

    It might be ich so try visiting this link:

    Maybe you would find something useful...

    By the way, yeah you could try putting him in a bucket or a spare aquarium then put the heater and aerator in it.

    I dont think it is ich, far from it, too big, anyone that has dealt with ich knows how it looks.
    I dont know what it is. What are your water parameters and stocking? Is the fish acting differently?

    I don't know what that could be. Perhaps separating it from the other fish is a good idea as a precautionary measure, it won't do the fish any harm.
