"Hi I have recently got a Hong Konk plec (which I believe is the same as the Chinese Hillstream loach) which is in a large tank with 3 Fancy goldfish. After 2 weeks I have noticed that there is another small 'sucking' creature in the tank. It appears to float around and sometimes it suckers onto one of the other fish's tail, or I have seen it briefly on the side of the tank. Is it possible that this is a baby Plec or have I got a parasite? It's very small so difficult to work out what it is. I would say it's round and flat, about 3-5 mm across. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks!"
