Platy with bumps over his eye
My male Platy in my 10gal had 2 decent sized bumps around his eye (not the eye itself but body over the eye). He is a Red Wag and the spots appear lighter than the rest of his body. Other than being lighter in color there is no other abnormal coloring. I noticed the spots yesterday so they have only been there a couple days at most.
Params are ammonia 0, nitrate 10, nitrite 0, ph 8, temp 75, phosphates a little high 1.5-2.
Tank is 10gal, planted, sponge filter, occupants 1 male Platy, 1 female Honey Gourami and 1 Oto, soon to also house 7-8 Platy fry as soon as I make sure both tanks' issues are resolved.
The fish in question was transfered in about 3-4 at most from other tank. At that time had a big scuff which has since completely healed and only had about 1/5 the length of one of his side fins which has regenerated to about 1/2 of its normal size. He also has a lighter circular spot on top of his head just back from his eyes(centered) which I watched for a long time because I was afraid it would develop into hole-in-the-head but it never did but yet the spot remains so I assume it is just a normal part of him.
