ange Posted September 20, 2020 Share Posted September 20, 2020 (edited) 9/21 UPDATE: The white spot is gone and I've taken some macro photos (one for each baby). I honestly have no idea what the white spot was. The babies will be quarantined with the adults once they've grown out some more. ORIGINAL: I noticed a white spot on one of my pleco fry that my LFS gave me and I'm wondering if it's possible that it has ich? The babies are about a week old and this is the only one with the white spot. When I brought them home I just netted them out of the bag and put them in my 5.5g, I didn't add any store water but there were of course droplets on the net. I have one of the parents + another fish from the same tank at the LFS in my quarantine setup and neither have any symptoms, though they are also receiving salt. I didn't want to salt the babies since I was concerned about harming them. I attached photo of the fry with the spot + both adults that are in quarantine. 6.4 pH 0 ammonia+nitrite ~35 nitrate The tank is unheated so ranges from 79-82F. I haven't tested hardness but it's a soft water tank (remineralized RO).
