|Subject: Discoloration on belly. Sun Feb 16, 2014 12:16 pm|| |
Hi just recently got some additions to my catfish family in the form of some peppermints now I proberly didn't have a good enough look before purchasing them but they seem healthy except ive noticed today they seem to have a white blotchiness on their bellies. Ive had common bristlenose for ages but my first foray into peppermint varieties. Fish seem healthy enough not as fat as I like them but belly doesn't appear to be sunken. Doesn't appear to be furry like a fin rot and at least two have the same.
Ive attached a picture is this normal or something to be concerned with and if so what action would you suggest? Thanks
