  1. Yeah, don't think it's hole in the head. Fish is not lacking in nutrition or vitamins, minerals. I add them. It looks fresh, like he tore skin on rocks, just not 100%. Yes I'll monitor, don't want bacterial infection to set in. Appreciate the input. Thx
  2. 78degrees, 0 Amon, 0 nitrite, 30nitra, 7.0ph.
  3. My Hero Severum had what I think is a wound on his side. Was not there yesterday. He is about 5 1/2 inches long and thick. Eats well and great color, appears very healthy. I'm thinking he might have scraped himself on an edge of lava rock which I have throughout the tank. Just hoping it's not disease, but I don't think so. Wanted to get additional opinions. I will add some extra salt at next water change, maybe help him heal ? Add stress coat ? Any input would be appreciated 👍 Thx GG
  4. I have a sponge filter from a cycled tank, a ziss moving bed filter and a large lava rock from an established tank. Looks like around 50 fry, mostly at bottom. Been feeding live baby brine shrimp, hard to see if they are actually eating them tho. Temp, ph, ammonia, nitrite are perfect. Will let nitrate test tell me when to do 25% water change, but thinking once a week. That's my situation and plan. Any criticism or advice is appreciated. Not a first time aquarist but 1st time fry owner. Of course I can just dump them in my SA Cichlid tank and call it a day...JK. Love parrot fish, hope most, if not all, live.
  5. My platinum and polar blue just had eggs hatch, well hatched 2 days ago. Can just make out eyes, tail. Still have a little sack on. Is it best to move them out, have a unused 10 gal tank, or use breeding net, in tank. I've read about instances with the breeding net being compromised and babies sucked out, or tiny fry swimming out through holes in netting. I'm thinking keeping them in same water is less stress, but having a whole tank, free from threats is another option, but there is the issue of new tank syndrome. Should they even be moved at all yet.They are being protected by mom now, but not swimming out yet. I'd move a sponge filter from current tank, swap 25% water from old tank to new, add stability daily. Temp will be same, ill get ph same. Think it be safe to move them ?What is best to feed them. Been putting vita-chem in their current water with food soak. Thank you for the help. Really great fish, hope I can raise them all up.
  6. It's a Blue Eye Lemon Bushynose, but that black around 1 eye shouldn't be there. I have another in a different tank that it didn't happen to. Nor sure if it's a fungus, or wound but it's been a while, has not gotten better. I tried adding vitamins to his food, varying his food, eats everything well.

  8. Black spot around my pleco's right eye. Seems to be acting normally, eating fine, just showed up one day. It's been over a month, no change. Only one in my community tank. 78deg, ph 7.0, soft water. No ammonia, or nitrites, 30ppm Nitrates. Tankmates: flame gourami, cory cats, neon, candy cane, Silvertip, rummynose tetras. Few otocinclus.. No idea what this is or if I should treat with Erythromycin?
  9. My red shoulder severum seems he has a white stringy thing on top fin of his left side. Not sure if its some sort of parasite. I see other fish that have a tiny white spot near front of top fin, not stringy though. They are eating well, not thinning out, just something I've noticed.Wondering if I should treat with salt, if so , what dosage, or some general cure or erythromycin or a combo.
