Ancistrus catfish has large white blotches


My Ancistrus catfish has large white blotches. Which disease could this be?

this is rather likely not a disease at all: A bright blotch pattern is the typical fright coloration of Ancistrus catfish, it quickly becomes normal again.

Cloudy skin slime is something else. This mostly indicates an infestation by bacteria or single celled skin parasites. However, with the Ancistrus catfish being rather insensitive it is rather unlikely, although not entirely impossible.
