Does He Have ICK?

I was looking at my Plattys and I Noticed This One Fish had Some White Stuff on him and I dont know What it is.
Also its only in one spot as of right now.
If it is Ick Then Im Going to Put Him Down.
Cause I Dont Want EveryThing Else Dying Off.

It's Not ThAT Clear But He Wont Stop Moving.






Its Right Back Before the Back Fin.

It definately looks like fungus!

if it was white spot, then there would be more than 1 spot and it wouldn't be that big....

i would move him to a Quarantine tank ( if you have one ) and treat him with fungal meds from the shop....

Hope this helps! :D

It won't hurt the other fish if you put it in the tank. ( it would probably help the other fish from getting it )

i have done it before and it didn't affect my fish, just made my water a little bit dirty and cloudy.....so i would suggest doing a 50% water change after the fish get cured... :D

hope this helps :D
