Black spots on kenyi

The bars are pretty well developed on this fish. If it is a female, you might have a stressed out fish. Alternatively, there might be some other genetics in that fish - aka a hybrid.

Its not a disease. I wouldn't treat it as such. More water changes if the tank is overstocked, or add more mbuna if there are only a few. Mbuna do well in an overstocked situation as you can spread out the aggression. good luck.

There isn't any fungus that I am aware of that is black. Grey, white and fuzzy is more typical.

Wild caught fish come in with this all the time. It doesn't harm them in the slightest.

I would stop using the melafix - you don't have a known disease and using a random drug / botanical as a cure isn't a good practice.

Pics would help. Also, if the tank is even a little overstocked, 25% is a small water change. Mbuna love fresh water. 50% isnt uncommon or unhealthy.

Bad genetics. See it a lot in Kenyi, and other heavily spawned mbuna.

Black spots on kenyi was created by mbos85
Hi everyone hoping for some help. I have a kenyi that has developed large black spots on her fins and body. they dont appear to be a parasite because they are not raised above the scales. I think it may be a fungus. I have been treating with melafix for 5 days and have not seeen improvement. I do 25% water changes every week and feed NLS flake and pellets. Today I noticed a small black spot that is similar on another fish. any help would be great. thanks.
