Angel sick?
The three spots on the tail looked like ich at first.....
But now I really have no idea what it is....

What do you think?

im not sure i see the spots is it the bottom line of the back fin?

SGDude 02-22-2011 08:02 AM

one top, two bottom.

I honestly would not worry about it if it has not changed. If it has not changed for two weeks, then it's not ich. I posted my suspicion earlier it cannot be ich as it looks less well defined to be ich. Looks like scarring to me.
