    Default Pimple like sore on side

    I've just notice that my Texas has something pimple like sore on its side. Just came about today or lastnight. I watch my fish regularly so I know this just happened. It's still acting normal and healthy. Just unsure why this could be. Water perimeters are good.

    Is it red? Are you sure it's not cotton wool disease?... I hope not.

    EDIT: Cotton Wool Disease= white patch

    Hmmm... I've heard this somewhere, someone told me about it! I CAN'T THINK!!!
    Ok, well I HAD to use google xD Has he been scratching himself? White film, reddened areas on body, abnormal swimming, scratching, folded fins.

    Must be treated quickly. Raise water temperature and use OTC medication for parasites. Salt treatment may work, as well.

    That's the only thing I can think of... sorry, I know not much help. http://www.fishnet.org/sick-fish-chart.htm

    I don't get it. My fish is happy and very healthy. Not doing anything abnormal to think that something was bothering it at all. I think I'm gonna give it a week and see if it gets bigger or if the fish starts acting as if something is wrong and then maybe treat the tank with salt and heat. Quick cure would be the last option for me as I don't like medicating. But if nothing gets better that's what I'm gonna have to do unless someone can pinpoint what this actually is
