    Exclamation Green Sev - white spots on fins. not ich??

    0 Not allowed!
    Have been off the grid a week or so - holidays and company and all that.

    Anyway, yesterday I thought I noticed some spots on my green sev's swim fins but - house full of people, no chance to take any action. Today, definitely more pronounced spots and also on this tail and dorsal. They are bigger than ich spots.
    He's not glancing, is eating well, shows no sign of illness.
    Water perims: A-0, Nitrites- 0 Nitrates- between 5 - 10

    90 gal FW. Last W/C was 5 days ago (60%) along with a substrate vac. generally do weekly W/C of 50%.
    Cleaned canister at that time.
    Only thing different in tank is that when I cleaned the canister, I added a bag of carbon because I was not satisfied with the clarity of the water (rinsed it well in tap then conditioned water before adding) Removed no other media. There has not been any new stock since I added the sev over a month ago. He's about 4 inches nose to tail. Wormed entire tank with prazi pro and metro plus less than a month ago.

    Video hopefully gives you an idea of what's happening with him.

    I can QT him if necessary but worry that what ever is ailing him may already be present in the tank. Any and all suggestions welcome. I have melefix and pimafix on hand but can get to a LFS today and purchase more meds if necessary.
