black moor fish; white spots + very lethargic.. HELP!!
Hello everyone I am new here so I want to thank you all for taking your time to read this; I am a somewhat new owner of a beautiful black moore fancy goldfish.. I've been doing everything in my power to provide the utmost care for him/her... However, he has had these small white spots... they are not tiny as in ICH disease instead they are a bit bigger and on the middle of his body, only one side. I went to the petstore and they told me what he had was probably ich, and not fungus. However, I've been using a medication in the water that is suppose to rid him and the aquarium of the disease.. He sits on the bottom of the tank and does not move around really, and hasn't been eating at all. The medicine does not seem to be helping him, but rather making him more uncomfortable. The color of the spots seems to be a whitish-grey color and it looks a bit translucent and cloudy. I am very confused because it seems to look a bit like fungus, but the pet store guy said that it would covering up to 20-30% of his body if it was that...I've also noticed that he sometimes darts around quickly and then returns to the bottom of the tank..CAN ANYONE HELP? =(
