    I took him out of the tank took forever to catch that one cardinal but finally got him in a qt tank is black spot disease contagious it seemed like the only cardinal to have it but thanks for the response.

    When I had it or what seemed to be black spot,some of the other cardinals had it as well some didn't.It was a community tank and just the cardinals developed the spots.It was probably about 15 years ago;not sure if there found a cure for it.Did you google the images?
