White spot?

What does white spot look like?

Will a top feeder fish hang out on the bottom of the tank as a part of white spot?

Whitespot looks like tiny grains of sugar on the fish, and you may see fish flicking against the substrate or decorations. The fish may hang around the bottom of the tank - what sort of fish is it?

Does the fish show any outward signs of whitespot or any other signs of illness, and have you tested your water for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?

the top fish has it much worse, but they both have it. it can be as little as one or 2 spots so look out. i know only too well the damage it can do!
