White spot on black ghost, please help
1 Attachment(s)
Hello, i just bought a black ghost 2 days ago from what I understand to be a very reputable lfs. Well, i'm just looking to identify what the disease could be and how to treat this disease. I'm assuming it's a fungus.

How big is the tank? 80 gallons

Is it uncycled or cycled? cycled

How much water do you change?15%

How often do you change the water? daily

Please try to answer these to the best of your ability. If you do not have a test kit, please bring a sample of tankwater to the nearest local pet store. They should test it for cheap, but most of the time free. Write the actual numbers down, don’t take ‘okay’, ‘low’ or ‘fine’ for an answer.

Temperature: 84

pH: 7.6

Ammonia: 0

Nitrite: 0

Nitrate: 10-20 (i honestly can't tell the difference in color between 10 and 20 on the api master test kit)

The temp is high and daily water changes are done because i have a school of 5 discus in the tank as well. ph is high out of the tap, tried in the past to lower it and found out constantly trying to change the ph was doing more harm than good.

I appreciate any help! first time dealing with fish disease.

Well if anyone is reading out there, after setting up my empty 40 gallon to use as a hospital tank, my gf convinced me to just call the lfs. They told me to bring it back for an exchange. I was going to get another black ghost but then i discovered they had just gotten balloon german blue rams in. So I ended up getting 4 of those.
