I have two females. Very large One has had a sore at the base of the rear lower fin. It is about the size of a dime, was sort of fuzzy greenish/blue and now has a white bubble formed on top of it. Also, it is starting to get other sores that are greenish kinda like mold. The other fish is also starting to get some. Petco has no idea. Does anybody else? Thanks, Ron. I can send a photo.

Hello Ron and welcome to OFL. Certainly a pic or two will help. Also as much info as you can provide such as tank size, filtration, water change schedule and water parameters. Readings of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate are most important.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

not knowing what it is and no pictures available, i would suggest a large water change...
not knowing yet the water parameters, it is better safe than sorry by doing water change

Do you have a Pleco in that tank, I have seen them suck the slime coat and even cause Hicky like injuries.
