White spots (NOT ich)

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I have 2 black moors. They appear to be healthy and happy, and eat fine. The only issue I have noticed recently is white spots on only one side of one of the fish's Dorsel fin. They are only visible when light reflects off of them. The tank just finished cycling, and nitrates, nitrites and ammonia are fine.

Could it be breeding stars? I have a black broadtail with breeding stars on his fins and gills, but they are barely visable unless you really look for them

I think I know what you're talking about. The first edge/ray of the dorsal? If you(anyone) looks at their fish, the first ray of the dorsal has like, white or clear spot things. You can see it on either side though, hm. If that's not it, than sorry. haha~ :)

It could be for sure.

But without more details, we really can't make a definite 'diagnosis.' Please answer the questions posted above :)
