    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?

    The nitrate is at 20, ammonia and nitrite are 0. Ph is around 8. It's not acting any 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.
