    Default Is this a disease?

    I just noticed one of my 16 month old blue diamonds has some black freckles. Nothing else seems abnormal with him, but I believe this is abnormal for a BD and also read something about "black spot disease" (which I am researching among old posts here right now to learn about, as I never heard of it before...). Anyone knows if I should be concerned or not?

    Thanks a lot Francis! That thread is very informative. Too bad the thread starter never posted what happened with their fish at the end. Spots look just like peppering in my fish, no bumps or relief of any kind, certainly not looking like a cyst at all. No other symptoms, and fish behave completely normal. I will medicate as soon as possible (not always an easy task here in Argentina) and will report back.

    Some where along this line there are some black cells. Any black on the base of the tail of freckles on the dorsal?
