View Full Version : Fish Freckle?

11/29/2011, 11:03 PM

I have an anthias that has a spot which looks very much like a freckle.

He's had it for a long time (like 2.5 months), it will vary in shades. It's located close to where the leading edge of his right pectoral fin meets the body. It's around 3/32" in diameter. He's been treated prazi-pro for the last 2 weeks. Recently it started becoming more prevalent (darker). It's been this dark before (dark brown) and will subside to a light tan color.

He seems to function fine.. swims around and beats up on the female anthias for getting near his meals :/

No evidence of irritation... doesn't scratch against things.

Any ideas on this?

Might just be an imperfection/bump on his skin. Can you post a pic?

Thanks for responding b0b. I tried for 30mins, wasn't able to get a good pic of it. Today the freckle has lightened up a bit and looks more like a slight blemish. I'll try to get a pic again when it darkens, right now you can't see it through my camera.
