Apistogramma Viejita Black Blotch (internal)

Hi Guys

Could you please check the last post in this thread http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...13/#post516842 and advice if it's anything i need to worry?

When i got the apisto it did not have that black blotch and this is the second week for the fish. Suddenly over the weekend, i observed that there is a clear black blotch on it but it seems to be something internal, kind of like it has eaten something and is visible outside? Sorry i'm a newbie, so don't understand/know many fish diseases.

If the picture in the other thread is not clear, please look at this picture Picasa Web Albums - Praveen

There are 3 or snails in the tank though. water parameters are all fine with both NH3 and NO2 0ppm, ph of 7.6 and temp of 25 degrees.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
