"I purchased a Raphael catfish about a week ago. I noticed a small white patch, not fuzzy, on his left side. Currently, the tank is being treated with melafix as I recently lost an angel fish that developed white nodules above his eyes and then developed popeye. I QT'ed the angel before it died. Does anyone know what this white patch could be on the catfish? The ph is 7.0. Temp is 78 degrees. The nitrates have been running high from 80 to 160 ppm. I just treated it again with prime and nite-out, as there was a trace of nitrites, below .25 ppm. I also did a 50 percent water change two days ago, vacuumed the gravel. I also added two plants to control the nitrates two days ago. The tank is 55 gallons and contains: 1 Cory cat 1 bumblebee cat 1raphael cat 1 tetra 1 comet gold fish 2 shumbunkins 1 gold gourami 1 needlenose gar 1 tire track eel 1 red tail shark 3 angels Please help! I don't want to lose another fish!"
