Woke up today and saw this on my sanchezi....have no idea what it is. Looks like someone took hot wax from a candle and dripped it on his fin

Here are some pics:

Fin rot? I thought that looked like something was actually rotting away. This looks like something attatched itself to his fin.

If it were me, I'd catch the guy in a net and take scissors and snip it along with 1/16" of the fin off.

that could be a real quick cure to it....since the fin would grow rite back..

But they have meds at the petstore or any online fish store or watever u call them.

they are medications for Anchor worms.
