Default Sick L25

Hi guys, I have a sick L25 pleco.
It is still ok this morning when I left for work. Now I come back to see that it is pale and looks whitish on its skin.

Can advise what sickness is it having?

Is it discolored with white patches?

I should treat it as fungus.. be sure that the pleco is not stressed and water parameters are perfect.

Good luck

What is the green thing in the background?

Looks like a rusty metal basket with peeling green paint to me

It looks like cottonish on the surface. The rest of he habitants are so far doing well. I think the water parameters should be ok. Thanks.

Hmmm... It is actually it's ceramic cave... It looks greenish because of the peeling white paint coat in the medication (waterline myxazin) which I added...
