They appear to be only on the side of the head and the very front of the fin closest to the head is a little white also.I can't see them. Are they tiny...salt grain size or larger pimples? And, are the white spots only on the side of the head and gills and not on the fins or other parts of the body?
No, there's nothing else on the body, and the fish seem very happy, swimming and eating normally. So perhaps they are breeding bumps. This is a pond I inherited when I bought my house, so I really don't know a great deal about fish. I have noticed some pretty intense chasing behaviour going on.Do you see any elsewhere on the body? On male koi/ goldfish, they develop breeding bumps on the gill covers face area. Are they rubbing against stuff or pushing other fish around/ chasing? Catch one in a large net and take a look. If it’s breeding bumps, your good, think of it as seasonal puberty! Like how teenage boys start to get wiskers!
I’ve got ick in my aquarium now, I’ll see if I can get a good picture to show you the difference.
