Hey there

Does it look like salt has been sprinkled on your fish?

If so, could be ich/whitespot.

Also, your tank should have some positive readings of nitrAte (unless its heavily planted).

If there are no readings for NitrAte, may mean that your tank hasn't cycled yet, or is having a mini-cycle or spike.

Get a pic of your cattie up, if possible.

It does look like salt sprinkled on them, also my clown loach did have ich white spot about a week ago I treated it with adding some salt, raising the temp to 28 and added wardley ich stuff the perscripted dosage the loach was cleared up in a day or 2. But the catfish haven't then. They seem fine just there skin is funny looking. Well I might do a part water change this arvo and another dose of the ich stuff...
