    Exclamation Round jelly-like bumps on new Otocinclus

    0 Not allowed!
    Greetings to all! This is my first post!

    I bought 4 Otocinclus for my 75 gal tank yesterday, and noticed after I got home that one has some sort of disease.

    The disease causes round bumps all much of the Oto's body and fins, mostly near the dorsal fins, the nose, and the tail and tailfin. I don't know how to describe the bumps... almost jelly-like, or slimy. You could say the bumps look as if they were like scales that have gotten really swollen. On the fins they look like jelly-like blobs.

    I am attaching a picture of the fish to this post. The same pic can be seen here too:

    The fish is now in my 75 gal planted tank. I set up the tank about 2 months ago, planted the tank with lots of plants. It currently has 5 corydoras, 1 ghost shrimp, and the new 4 Otoclinclus.

    If anyone could help me ID the disease, and/or any recommendations for treatment, I would be very appreciative!
