    Hi there; I've been monitoring one particular platy for the past few days. I've noticed there's a white spot developing near her back fin, it looks somewhat fluffy. I've taken her "out" of the general tank and just placed in her a temporary containment while I figure this out. If it happens...

    I've only had gravel in tanks before and never used fert. tabs either. But when i set up a 5 gall. for my small red claw crab, I used calcium sand so she could shift thru it.
