White Spot on Algae Eater
I just noticed a white spot on the common pleco, that wasn't there about an hour ago. I just added the aquarium salt, is this just salt on him or is something wrong?
It is very hard to diagnose you problem without a photo. How big is the spot? Could it be that he may have burned himself on your heater? I have a big plecostomus and a large synodontis that are alwys trying to be the main course at a fish fry. Add MelaFix and all should be ok if this is the case.
Like Bob says we need a photo to be able to tell. Plecs do ometime change colour a bit and appear lighter in patches or darker in patches. Mine, too, seem to burn thmselves on the heater now and again.
Why did you add salt?
Ok sorry you guys I've been trying to post pictures this morning of my algae but I've had some more problems with my new fish, had 2 more floaters and 1 half floater.
Ok here is the best I could right now. He doesn't like having his picture taken. So none of them are close ups of him.
Ok here is another picture maybe you can tell more by it.
