A photo would be most helpful - I know it is your friend's fish, but can you ask her to snap one and forward it to you so that you can post it?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Can't help. But the fish sure looks active.

If you had someone who has a saltwater tank I would try acclimating it to saltwater and see if the red spots start shrinking.


But that is not the type of problem I had with some mollies in FW when I found aquarium salt to be extremely effective.

my .02

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)
