Brown spots on Platy's heads
I have a 55 gallon tank with 2 platties, one glofish, and 5 neon tetras. I have noticed the brown spots on my older platy's head for a while now. I just got the other platy about 2 weeks ago and I don't think she had these brown spots before I put her in the tank. I have had my tank going for about 4 months now maybe 5. I am very new to all this and still trying to get my tank stable and stocked. Just curious as to what these brown spots are. thanks
is it huring your fish?? could be a parasite or algae =S
it doesn't seem to be harming these fish. I have had the older one for at least 2 months, and I just got the sunburst a couple of weeks ago. they seem healthy, they swim around and eat well. I have had lots of trouble with my tank...but I am very new to all this.
maybe if you try a few small water changes.to see if the dots go away. get the water tested as well cause there's a type of disease that called hole in the head that's caused by a fungus and the fungus only get out of hand when the waters dirty.
