    Could you turn your tank lights off, shine a good flashlight on it and then take a picture? I know I ask weird things, sorry

    Yup, he's the best. Different time zone though, just be patient. Now about those patches that possibly look golden to me???

    He is still active and eating perfectly fine I just wonder what exactly is that patch only on one side he has it

    It's good that he is behaving normally. Maybe Dutch will come on and say, Oh that's just normal coloring.
    It is kinda hard to see in your pic. I was just trying to check for velvet. It appears most frequently on the gill area. Hard to spot though. Flashlight in the dark is the best tool. But again, hoping Dutch say just normal coloring.

    I think is just natural coloring of the plates around the gills. Have a look at these pics of my albinos. Same I think. 341653260887c93dc474df0c435f0ab9.jpg 7ee14304bedee9b87326d081c9e0b3da.jpg 81c38f2c17366a0582842c74f017384e.jpg ca2b9536c285a3ec79aec030ef4a3e68.jpg
