    Is this 100% white spot? Or a pattern

    I bought an upside down cat yesterday. I could have sworn I didn't see this pattern on it and when introducing to the tank. But was pretty fast moving. Woke up this morning and noticed this. Does it look like white spot? If so what steps shall I take? Many thanks
