An injury on Kara
Hi guys. Yesterday Kara my female platy had this small white dot on her forehead near her dorsal fin and I thought she might had ick or something. So I did a 25% water change with warm water of 81 degrees to see if it will go away. So today it got worse and started to get bigger. now it looks like it can be some kind of fungus. Can someone help me what it could be? Here's the picture of the white thing. I can't take clearer pictures on my little canon PowerShot A490

Here's a clearer picture..

It's too hard to tell from the picture. Is it fuzzy at all?

It doesn't look fuzzy at all. Odds enough it's not effecting her in anyway.

It could be fungal or bacterial or an injury.

Keep a close eye on it and for any changes in your fish's behavior and let us know if you see anything um..... "fishy"

In the meantime, keep the water cleaner than clean.

Hope she's ok.

I have an update on Kara's condition. I'm happy to report that the white thing apparently is starting to fad away really slowly( It's turning back to orange.). She's doing fine now. I did a 50% water change today and continue to do that.

Here's the results.

Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0.25
Nitrate 5
