 Friends,
 
 I  recently  seen  3  Harlequin  Rasbora  fishes  in  my  tank  having  a  white  spot  on  the  mouth.  Please  see  one  picture  which  I  was  able  to  click  closely.  And  I  do  2  times  water  change  per  week.  I  buy  RO  water  from  outside  and  the  PH  seems  to  be  in  5.9  -  6.1  range  which  seems  pretty  low.  Need  your  suggestion  on  what  is  this  and  how  can  it  be  cured.

 That  is  ich,  doesn't  matter  what  water  you  use,  when  you  buy  fish  from  lfs  you  need  to  check  properly  if  the  fish  got  white  spot  or  not,  hope  you  got  some  new  fish  from  lfs,  to  treat  ich  you  need  to  raise  your  water  temperature  to  28  degree  and  use  some  anti  ich  medicine.  but  try  to  remove  the  affected  fish  to  quarantine  tank.  check  the  below  site  for  more  info

 There  are  no  new  fish  introduced  and  ICH  is  usually  characterized  by  many  bright  white  spots  on  fins  and  other  part  of  body.  However  this  is  just  1  dull  white  spot  on  the  mouth  of  all  the  3  rasboras.  I  really  doubt  it  to  be  a  ICH.

 Could  be  a  minor  injury,  Just  maintain  good  water  quality  and  it  should  go  away.
