White growth on Tetras

Postby chazd8 » Tue Mar 24, 2015 7:05 am

Some of the Tetras (Cardinal and Tucano) have white growth on there bodies. It does not appear to be Ich. The shape is more linear and the edges are more jagged. It is not a spot or cylindrical in shape. The fish are not itchy or trying to scrape there sides. The tank has maintained a constant 80 degree temp. I change 50% water every two weeks. Any Ideas?
