Whenever I have an issue, I take the fish into my hands, and photograph from the top. I find that the fish doesn't move around so much, and the pictures are more clear.

Mikey, I think I might have seen something, but this is another one of those things that do not (yet) warrant treatment. You could gather materials that you may need to treat, if you don't have any on hand, but after that, take a step back. That area of the fish is prone to all sorts of minor issues, but that's just life. They will deal with it, and it's important to let them try to deal with it.

It's like this, if you see one pimple on your face, do you jump to take a 3-6 month course of acne antibiotic? The most that you might do is to apply a topical, but in the case of fish, this is rather useless. So, we leave it alone. For now. OK? :)

Okay. :) What should I have on hand for if it worsens? I can update tomorrow with any changes.
