I bought recently from one improter a colony of ikola and bemba and both 1.5 to 2 inches young. they had them in the dealers shop and now i kept them in seprate tanks and our of 15 fish 5 had these and now its been 1 week + and the smaller dots are finished but the main big ones are still there.

And i do not think he imported WC ... they came from Taiwan he said

Can you post some clear photos of it? I have read that there is one type of infection that can cause black spots. But I cant seem to remember if its during the infection itself or a side effect of it.

Hi,

The black spots are almost finished and few other bemba fry also lost those spots and i am so surprise and starting to think they are WC. reason being when i ordered bemba before from Thailand the coloured up after 2.5 inch and these little 1.5 inch fry have coloured better than my biggest one

I finally will have a beautiful 24Bemba and 8 Duboisi tank in few months



you think the small ones can be WC.

I don't think that the rate at which they color up will determine whether they are wild caught or not. You would really need to know for sure the source that caught them. Also, at an inch and half, they are not wild caught.

If a majority of them are coloring up early I would suspect that they are males. I have some Pemba fry that I'm growing out of my 2 WC females and they are about 1.5" and some of them are developing their stripe already. Orange and all.

Black spot also call lake mark, usually caused by bacteria in the lake, even recover will still remain stain, they used to have on wild caught fish, but recently found on pond raised off spring as well. Nothing serious i think my tropheus has them as well.
