    Hi everyone, I just noticed today that my red spotted gold severum has developed some white spots on his dorsal fin and tail fin. I got him about two weeks ago, he arrived healthy and still seems to be acting normal. He's swimming around and has a good appetite.

    I'm really hoping this isn't ich... does anyone have a clue as to what this is?

    My water parameters are:
    0 ammonia
    0 nitrite
    4-5 Nitrate

    My tank is 79 degrees and is a standard 75 gallon.

    Here's some pics: sev1.jpg sev2.jpg sev3.jpg

    It’s probley Ich maybe fin rot but I don’t see any evidence of that

    It is definitely not fin rot.
    OP, I suspect a light case of ich, but not totally sure.

    I’d go ahead and raise the water tempature graduallly and treat with medications if need be.

    From what I can see it seems to be ich.

    Thank you everyone. I will be picking up seachem paraguard tomorrow and treating the tank with that. Hopefully it works out.

    Hard to say what it is at this point. It should be some where close to sugary sprinkles on the fish now...You might want to get a bottle of Kordon Rid Ich just in case.

    Do other fish show signs of it?
