Hey everyone, I only just noticed a large white patch on Daz's stomach. It doesn't look like Ich as it's a large patch, not dots. It is inbetween his gills and his ventrals and is on the underside of his body. I'm not too sure about how serious it is, I think he's had it since I got him (about three weeks ago).
Anyway, just wanted to know if I should be concerned? I've got some money spare so I can pop to LFS tomorrow and get anything for him if needed too. If this isn't at all serious I apologize for taking up space on the Diseases section...
