i have 2 1.5" peppered cories in my 15g tank. lately, i have noticed a bluey spot on one of their bellies. im not sure what it is. he is not dyed and ive had him for nearly a year. does anyone know what it is? only one of them has it.

could it be an injury. my male dwarf gourami is creating a bubble nest and every so often the cories go up for air and the gourami attacks them until they go back to the bottom.

or is it disease or something?

Hi Tom, what size is the blue spot? Does it look like a mark, or is there actually any damage round the area?

A picture would be helpful (although photographing a cory's belly might not be the easiest thing to do)!!

Also, have you tested the water parameters recently?

it isnt but it looks like a bluey purple marker pen dot. the thick pens. no damage and he seems healthy and he swims about happily with his friend.

the ammonia 0
nitrite 0
nitrate 10-15
