Hi all,

Suddenly , my fish developed with a white patch near the gills (Picture attached). Please let me know the treatment.

Fish is very active and eating food properly.

I medicating the fish with Anti itch (blue liquid) and rock salt. Any other suggestion please.

Not sure if that's ich, as usually it presents as little white dots all over. That looks more like some other kind of fungus or possibly an ulcer type thing to me, although only one of your pics worked so it's hard to tell.
