But trying to rub on a rock a lot! Almost like she is trying to get under it, but I think is trying to itch or is being irritated?
So as said, I'm having a problem with my comet fish called Clementine which is either some scale lose, a fungi or possibly parasites. I'm a bit of a loss and I'm not sure what to do and I would love your help.
I've attached photos but it's very hard to get a photo of. It does not appear cotton like, it appears quite flat but looks more than just scale lose. It's been like this for a few days now, has not worsened or gotten better. Clementine seems her happy self and is eating and swimming around. I only think it could be parasites as she is rubbing at the rock a lot, I added plants a few months ago (which she ate within 2 weeks) but nothing else has been added.
Oh temperature has been fluctuating a bit, by a few degrees as our weather is extremely up and down at the moment.
Please let me know if I need to answer any more questions
