Since day one, my lovely fish Cass has had a discoloured patch on her side. Like it's a creamy white colour like when Female's get breeding stripes, but she has always
had it. The thing is, that patch has almost no scale definition. Like you can see a scale texture on a fish. That's obvious, but you can't see any scale pattern/texture on that patch. She's perfectly healthy, eats normally, is playful, doesn't sulk, doesn't rub her side on things, and we did treat her for fungus and such with no results. Is it possible she maybe has a touch of the colour-change (marbling) gene?
I'd love to take a picture, but every time I bring out a camera or go near her tank she turns into a crazy glass surfer. I've tried. Just can't get a picture that shows that there isn't much texture to it. This is the best I can provide, though she was a little pale after a water change. That's part of why I think she has the colour change gene. After a water change, she doesn't just get fear stripes, she turns really, really
Was just curious what you all think.
