So, 2 days ago I noticed a white pimple on Quinns wen and did an 80% wc. I easily wiped away the upper surface part. Late last night I notice a white spot on his tail and red streaking of his tail and reddened vent His behavior is unchanged and Quinn is eating like a champ and swimming just like normal. I took a video, but I'm at work right now and am having internet trouble with my phone. I'm gonna go find the form to post on cuz I checked the params of the water while I'm at work (multitasking) Please Help!!!!
