I have been dealing with ich for awhile but was finally through the worst of it after a couple fish deaths & no visible spots for a few days ( but still treating ) Using paragurd now daily as directed. After api quick cure at half dose failed.

And today when I examined the tank I discovered GBR eggs. And the male has a white spot.
injury ? Ich ? Hole in the head? What are your thoughts?
20 gal long planted tank 0 ammonia 0 nitrite at nitrates at 5
one pair of gbr 3 male guppies and a school of Pygmy corys

I was afraid of that , I don’t think I can treat both ich and that with the same meds or at the same time
I ordered the meds for that just in case ( pic included ) I figure treat with paraguard til the other arrives?
I have never dealt with that. :/

I'm seeing 2 different things I can't ID. There's the spot above his right eye...& a pale bump on near his gills in maybe the 5th pic.

The 1 above his eye has been in most of your ram pics, maybe a scrape? The "bump" is more concerning to me. It doesn't look like HITH from what I've seen of that but I don't have any ideas either.

Crap! Just when they laid eggs & you're treating ich too. I wish we were just congratulating you on a ram spawn & not this other stuff. I'll think some more...

I know right! Ugh, I am open to any and all suggestions moving forward. I also ordered more seachem products that may help. :/ I just am not sure moving forward. For now I am just continue int with paraguard and close monitoring :/
Today was water change day ( levels looked ok prior (0.0. & 5) but I did pax anyway To keep it extra clean

Don’t know if this helps but these are the photos that I took In the series of that photo you mentioned about that spot in his side. I don’t know for sure it gives you a better view or not but I don’t think I loaded all of them and it should give a better angle

Yeah, it's that 1 raised spot kind of behind his left eye that concerns me. I don't know what to think...it's most visible to me in the first pic. I'm just hoping the spot above his eye is a scrape, not sure...

Keep up your Paraguard tx & water changes...& hope it goes away or turns into something we can identify...sorry to be so unhelpful. You don't want to just dump drugs in without an idea of what it may be...

Agreed, Thank you so much for your help ( I have been searching images of hith and very few look like this, but Like you say hopefully it goes away or at becomes a bit easier to identify)

I will update
