What is on my Oranda?


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I received my two new Oranda goldfish. I’m a bit concerned about one of them, he has these large white spots near his eyes. 
Some background the seller had mentioned he got a bit beat up by another goldfish prior to the sale, and his wen had been damaged. Knowing this I prepared my tank with aquarium salt and purchased some Paraguard knowing he’d be more susceptible. 

 When I received him he has these white spots near his eye. I thought they may be ich but they seem to be bigger and a little fuzzy. Is it fungus?

For now I’ve been doing daily partial water changes with aquarium salt and a half dose of paraguard as I’m scared they may have negative effects to it. 

Thanks in advance!7A547E6E-605A-47EE-A828-FAEF22C0E76E.thumb.jpeg.911bffcbed1dfa91af84a4284e1c7062.jpeg

**the speckles on his body are sand, he got a bit of sand on him during the water change
