do you have pics? It could just be anomalous.. just part of her physical appearance. Does it look fuzzy?

It kinda sounds like ich? Try googling pictures of ich and see if it looks like that.

hmm... i checked a few photos of ich, im not sure though if thats it because its only on his pectoral fins now, and not anywhere else, but if it is ich, would it be a cause of death for the fish?

I managed to treat my fish Kilo with just heat (84 degrees) and aquarium salt.
