422 Posts
I’m watching my friend’s fish while she’s away and I noticed a white spot on one of them today. I’ve been doing my best researching what it could be, but I think I really need the feedback of someone more knowledgeable. My friend has a spare tank that can be used as an isolation tank if needed. The pictures aren’t very good because she’s really fast but they’re the best I could get.
im also curious about the black spots on her body. Are they normal?
i appreciate any help!!!

It could be a tumor, or just an injury. It’s hard to tell with the spots pictured, clearer photos would be great.
