    My LFS guy says they will fall off and not to worry about them its been a couple weeks now and he appears fine they are still there unchanged but not spreading. All water parameters are really good. Anyone have a similar problem with one of their fish, and what happened to it :confused: Thanks.

    its probubly ich. the fish is probubly just stressed out. if hes still eating i would leave him alone but if he stops eating i would put him in a hospital tank and put chemicals in it to get rid of it. sorry i dont know the chemicals i think its iodine but im not sure ive never had to deal with it.

    Sounds like ich but could also be lympho (cauliflower). If your fish has Ich but seems to be eating and swimming as it always does, it will more then likely go away on its own. Ich is hard if not impossible to treat so most people just make sure the fish are eating and play the waiting game. Lympho is pretty harmless as the infected cells do not multiply and will usually cure itself.
