White discoloring on wen and fin

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I recently started a new tank and one of my fish don’t look as well. It’s been 4 days since he came home and today he showed some discoloration on his we  and side fins. Any ideas? He is swimming fine, eating and seems active.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks,

Jason

how recently have you set up this tank?

 Was the tank cycled before you got them or are they cycling the tank?

Wens can be funky, and transparency at the tips of fins is very normal, especially if his black isn’t stable color.  Can you take a picture of him from the top and front under daylight or very good room light so I can see what is wen vs reflection of your tank light?
