Looks far to big to be WS in my opinion as long as it's feeding keep feeding and keep the water quality good :)

If its eating and all fine why put it through the stress of moving it I've done that in past moved fish to QT to then result in a complete wipeout

Yeah she's eating well it doesn't seem to be effecting her at all so I'll keep an eye on it for now and see what happens

I used a polyp lab reef safe white slot treatment. That is the only thing I have found to be completely affective. And I have had a few issues with white spot needless to say don't use that shop anymore

No change spot is still exactly the same no more spots and none on other fish? Could it be a sting off a brissleworm?
