Please help…


Last week I bought a fish with white spot on the bottom fin towards the back….
(I thought it was supposed to look like that)
This week some of fishes that I had started to form same spots on same area of the fin…

WHAT IS THIS?



FYI: all fishes are African cichlids

It sounds like they are devoloping egg spots which is perfectly normal in both male and female african cichlids from both lake Mawali and lake Victoria, but they are most often yellow. I have a M. cyaneorhabdos that has white spots on the anal fin.

Look under cichlid, category, Malawi ...study the egg spots in the posted pictures. If, instead, they look like white grains of salt (or they spread) ask about ick.
