Hi Everyone,
I recently transferred my Sev back to the 40 gallon so that he could grow back in peace, he had also recently recovered from a tail injury because he was nipped a little by a BP.

I've noticed some white spots on his tail and I don't think it is ich, no fish in the tank share these same white spots. I'm guessing it's bite marks?

What do you think? @tyguy7760 @NavigatorBlack @Anders247 @chromedome52
Thanks!

Eh not too sure about that, but ever since he's been with me (3 months) he's always had some white spots on his tail.

They often have harmless cysts on their tails. They are larger than ich, and occur on the fin rays, usually as a result of injury.
