    Hi I have a school of 12 rasboras. Today I noticed one of them had white spots on both sides of his belly.

    I checked my amonia bc i thought its amonia burns but the test came back fine....

    Help. Do I isolate?[​IMG]

    It's not ammonia burns. It looks a bit like fungus but need a better picture, preferably without that background. However, if it is fungus and on both sides in the same place, that would be unusual.

    Check the water quality for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate & pH. they should be fine if the other fish are fine but check them anyway.

    Do a 75% water change and gravel clean the substrate every day for a week. Make sure any new water is free of chlorine/ chloramine before it is added to the tank.

    If the tank has been running for more than 2 months, clean the filter if it hasn't been done in the last 2 weeks. Wash filter material in a bucket of tank water.
