Is a fish doctor in the House!
Have a male adult platy that is darting wildly(sometimes into the glass, or as if its chasing another fish that's not there), has had major loss of appetite, and has what appears to be a white fungus on its mouth.
  • Does anyone know what this is?

Currently, its in a quarantine tank being treated with Kordon's Ich Attack (which is supposed to treat fungus too), aquarium salt, and formalin and malachite green.

Well, it probably is fungus and he's stressed and he might even be chasing the fungus. I'd treat with a broad spectrum fungus medication and limit it to one product. That way, you can control dosage, temp, etc, better. Keep an eye on your other fish. Best of luck.
