Any help with what is on the body and fin of my flame? Can only have been there for a day or two max. Sorry about the bad photos. Just using an iPhone and a fish that won't stop swimming.

if its just that one fish and that one spot it could be flukes or it could be a bite from another fish ? any aggressive fish toward it>? need a better picture to confirm google some picture os fish disease and compare

Trying the best images with imagr maybe they will work better.

ok doesn't look like ich too big to be, looks like either flukes ( does it look like stuff is coming out of or hanging off fish?) or it could be trauma from a fight or tight squeeze

doesn't look like anything is coming off of him. looks like a little cotton piece almost with a slight blue dot in the middle.

Haven't seen any of the fish attach each other before and have been together for about 4 months now. they do like to try and squeeze through the rock work a lot.

i would leave it and see how it goes , as long as he is still swimming good and eating should heal on his own its its trauma, if it looks like flukes u can take him out and use prazipro that works pretty good

awesome! thank you for the info Craigdillman. he was eating and swimming like he always does yesterday, so will give him a day or two and see. hopefully he just rubbed up against a rock to tight.

Going by the photo, and it's really not very good as noted, I'm thinking it may be a couple flukes or isopods which are very common with Angelfish. The treatment would be PraziPro. A freshwater dip would confirm as the "bugs" will usually fall off. Fw dip isn't considered a cure though.
