    I have noticed for the past week a spot on my fire fish. It is about 2mm round circle that kind of looks like white slim/fuzz. May have grown a bit since first noticed. Got a blue tang 2 weeks ago that just got over a case of ich. Fish is eating well otherwise and doesn't seemed to be bothered by it yet.
    Crap, I just noticed another spot on the other side now. Maybe it is ich, it just doesn't look that similar to what the tangs looked like. Can't get a good pic, he hangs out at the back of the tank.
    Thanks
