  1. I’m not sure if that was just a reflection off the glass. I’ll look again tonight when I get home from work and look more thoroughly at their bodies but this has been going on for at least 3 months and I feel like I would have seen anchor worms on her dark scales in that amount of time. Sometimes the little growths are more wispy and cottony looking and are normally much shorter. There is also some white areas throughout the creases in her wen. I was suspicious of a fungus but not sure how to treat. If I can get better images I’ll try to add them as well.
  2. Hello, I'm new here and have scoured the web for a while trying to figure out what is wrong with my Orandas wen. It gets white growths in it which sometimes look like white dots and sometimes look like cottony strings. This is one of the longest I’ve seen. This has been going on for several months now. I’ve tried medicating their food with kanaplex and just did a methelyne blue dip for an hour last weekend in a separate bowl. I have her and a dwarf oranda in a 30 gallon tank with an extra sponge filter in addition to the HOB filter that came with the tank, and air bubbler. Parameters are generally around 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 20 nitrate, 7.5 ph, and water temp of 75 ish Can someone identify what is on her wen so I can find the right treatment? It’s only on the wen, never the body or fins, or anywhere else in the tank. She eats and swims normally and doesn’t seem to be in any distress. I notice occasional white spots on the wen of the dwarf oranda tank mate but not like the black thai oranda Thanks for any help and suggestions!
