No, this isnt something they usually do. Is there anything in the tank that he couldve hurt himself on? Wedged into? Please take care to monitor him and make sure nothing else happens.

HElp please !!!!
I think it's more like mineral deposits or some sort of algae...How long are the lights on for? And how often are your water changes? Infrequent changes and.or too much light make algae happy, which grows in many types. It could be that.
I cant tell anything from the pics.
And Ich wouldnt look like much of anything on a plant, trust me. It wouldnt be ich, ever.

I think around, what? 6ish months? At least in a really remarkable way. Though, with a good food they can continue to grow over time. My older fish was pretty old when I got him, and continued to grow.
Theyre "grown", like look like adults but might be smaller, around 3-5 months.
If you ask a breeder, theyd probably know.
