Mandarin Goby, white spots? not ich


I've been noticing on my mandarin these two spots on the "lower back".

It kind of looks like the color is coming off??

Maybe something like rock burn? squeezing in between rocks, like a carpet burn...

The spots are right at where her "points" are on the back... Kind of boxy, hope another mandarin owner knows what I'm talking about.

Any opinion would be great...

I know the pictures are rather shisty, the best my girlfriends coolpix could do at the moment...

to me it looks like a case of lymphocystis( i spelled that wrong I think), which is a very common disease that usually will just past with its life cycle. I have never seen someones fish who died from this disease, however if it continues to be a problem then it may die from stress resulting indirectly from lymphocystis. -Joe

Right on, that looks a lot like what the spots are.

Man, I've been putting all of my time towards my new build and having been giving my other tank the tlc that it needs. Things have gotten a little messy in there...

I haven't done anything to it but feed it for the past 2-3 months... Noticed the spots forming about a month ago...

Why can't my new system just be ready already!?!

It's been cycling for a week now... I was hoping to get the new one built and cycled by now so I wouldn't have to perform any more maintenance on the other one.

I'm sure he'll be feeling better once some clean water is put in there!
