White Bumps on my Bristlenose
I have a bristle nose Pleco that has large white bumps on her, they almost look like wounds. She is between 2.5 and 3" long. They are an her back and tail. She has been in hiding (I could see her in the log) but has recently stopped eating - when she did not go after the zucchinni I knew something was up. I did a water change yesterday.
The tank is a 50 gallon community tank, she shares space with rainbows, clown loaches, a rather large Pictus (could that be the culprit?), tetras, a small black shark and tetras. Water tests good for nitrates/nitrites and ammonia and the ph is 7.0. They eat wafers, flakes, worms, pellets and veggies. Everyone else seems happy and active....an otherwise healthy tank.
I'll try to attach a picture, if it does not work I would be happy to email it to someone to look at.
Assistance needed...please and thanks!
