This is my angelfish. It's got some kind of spots on it's tail, but I don't think it's ich (although I do think that another fish in the tank has ich :( :(

The depth of the field in this photo is pretty shallow but the spots have a focused center, and it sort of diffuses as it spreads out. They seem to be focused on the spine like parts of the tail, so I'm not sure what I'm looking at here.

Any ideas?

Well they're definitely not air bubbles, just from how long they've been on there and the shape.

Thanks for the info all - and thanks for the words on the photo. I'm a photographer, so I feel like I have to pull out something besides the iPhone photo every once in a while :) I have a photo of my tank currently in my gallery - although the web made it pretty grainy looking...

The spots on your angel do not look like a disease problem to me. In my best estimate, they show old marks like a bruise the fish might have gotten when being caught at the LFS or even at the breeder. I would keep an eye on the fish to make sure you don't see any spread but would not worry about it too much.

I'm not sure what it is unfortunately. It's just from Pet Smart, so it's definitely nothing too wild. My LFS is about 20 minutes away and then theres Pet Smart which is also about 20 mins away and they have a good selection also. My LFS goes through cycles of having good fish in stock. You'd think there would be more in Cleveland, but... after all - we are the mistake on the lake!
