So, I check out Gregory with a flashlight on a regular basis for things like ich, velvet, fin rot... anything I can think of, after the disaster with Fiyero. I've certainly learned from that.
He had a gold spot on his left gill since I got him. I don't think its velvet, because I've read that velvet presents in a gold 'dust'. This looks like a flake, and has gotten very shiny lately.
I've tried for about an hour to get a picture of this gold flake, but to no avail. He is terrified of the camera, and refuses to sit still for even a moment.
I'm a little bit curious as to what it could be, and, although I'm sure its nothing to worry about, I would really like to know what it is. He seems to be pretty healthy, and his behavior is pretty normal, except for an unusual amount of bubblenests lately, but I'm certainly not worried about those.
Anyone have an idea what it is?
