I don't know what it is but I hope you find out soon. It looks like it could be fungal, but then again, if it all of a sudden appeared (as that size) and the perimeter isn't changing it could be a burn?
IDK what a fish burn looks like :-?

willow 01-18-2009 01:03 PM

it's not grown in size, :dunno:

aunt kymmie 01-18-2009 01:21 PM

How long has it been there and has the pleco changed his behaviour at all?
I need to go google images of fish "burn"..

willow 01-18-2009 01:27 PM

to be honest i'm not sure exactly :( but it's not changed size in the last couple of days.
i have been adding melafix to the tank for the last week,as my Angel had a sore on its side.
however the plec is exactly the same as usual,comes out for food,and
eats with the others.no change in behaviour at all.

aunt kymmie 01-18-2009 01:29 PM

Well, that's good he hasn't changed behaviour and is eating. I just tried to google images of fish burn scarring and that was fruitless. Wish I could help...
