Thanks for moving it. I hope someone has an idea what these blotches are and how to treat them. In the photo they look silver, but they're grayish/white. They almost look like discoloration.
Here is what I did so far. I've run this fish thru hypo thinking it had ich, once done, I moved all the fish back into the DT except this one. I started this fish on Methylene Blue/Malachite Green treatment. According to the literature that came with the meds, I should have seen a dramatic improvement in 3 days with some improvement by 1st day. After 5 days I saw no change at all.
I decided to try ParaGuard. So I performed the dip for almost 3 hours (Seachem says 1 hour is enough) and still no improvement. I am not keen on using Copper unless its needed. It's obviously not Ich, and if it were a fungus wouldn't the green malachite treatment yield some visible improvement in 5 days. I stopped that treatment because it seemed like the wrong one. I don't want to needlessly treat a fish.
keeps telling me it's a discoloration of the fish because it came with 3 other pacific blues and all of them have it.
Is it worth trying copper?
