Well since i've added the cherry shrimp the black phantom's have become much more territorial to eachother, looks like one of them may have injured itself on its side. Its a spec of a wound, but it may have gone fungal. Its no cotton like texture or anything, just white, so im hoping its just the torn flesh gone white. The fish itself is not acting likes its sick and chases away any fish that encroaches on her territory.

Question is, if its fungal, does it spread? Either way i wont be treating the tank, i just want to know if i should wait it out or rid myself of the fish early

I would take the fish out and try to salt him. I had a fish that started with a cut and then got a very bad fungus that killed him. Good luck, I would try with the little guy

I think that if it is fungal, it will not spread to healthy fish.

Had my dumb oscar that bumps into things weekly with scars weekly! Always have a white patch and heals within the day or two! I usually dun treat anything and just do a 20% water change for a few days in a row~ And it just heals up nicely, as I honestly never seen anyone else in the tank get it!

Good luck~
