I have a 20 gallon long tank w/ 20 pristella tetras in it. the tank has two filters and is due for a water change. I only recently completed the school, of the last 4 I bought, when I brought them home 1 had a black spot inside of it (top back half)... I asked my lfs what it could b... nada

the spot turned grey and seemd to be disapearing. today (1 & 1/2 weeks later) I saw a red spot and a red spot w/ a white tip protruding from the rear of the fish....

any ideas?

I think he may have been attacked as I see the the white spots are his flesh so I dosed the tank with "melafix." I do have formalyn to treat them w/ if it turns out to be a parasite but I'd prefer not to use it.
