Question Discoloration?

Hello,


Hope someone could give me an answer? Yesterday I was staring at Camilo (my axie) and I noticed his colour was sort of yellowish all over, and this morning I noticed he seems to have like white dots, pin needle size.
His tail (I'm just looking at him now) is like yellowish as well.
He is eating fine and the water is ok, chemical/temperature wise.
Any suggestions what should I do?
I'm adding some pictures taken today (about an hour ago) see if you can spot something, I tried to zoom in with the camera but no luck.
Thank you in advance,


Delirio

I must say he looks perfectly fine to me, slight colour changes do occur on and off throughout their lives same as with us lol.
From what I can see I would say not to worry

Wow he's fat! I wish my baby would start growing like that... Maybe it's just one of those things where "they change colors with surroundings", but he doesn't look fungus-y at all

Hello everyone,


Thank you very much for your reply. He is looking better this last few days so it was probably a thing to do with the light or as suggested, the momentarily change of colour.
And yes, he is "chubby" LOL but trust me he swims all over the tank, also once a fortnight he has a "chase the shrimp" exercise which consist of me putting a shrimp on the surface of the water, holding it with a pair of tweezers (the shrimp is tiny) and moving it so he has to come up and chase it.
Trust me he is *so* fast that more than once he ate the shrimp without even giving me the chance to move it around.
Again thank you for giving me some peace of mind regarding his skin.

Have a lovely day!


EiOK!
