I'm newish(2years or so), to the hobby. I still don't know how to diagnose my fish. A.C. is the only place I listen to for advise about my tanks just because I don't want to do the whirlpool of information on the internet. I have heard Cory say many times that this forum is the best place to get help. And I thank everyone who has helped me so far. Now I'm looking at some advise given here by a fellow user that is going to be very costly, (for me anyway) and be putting medications in 2, 55 gallon community tanks. That is scary for me, one because I love these fish but also because it will cost so much. How do I know which advise I can really trust and which is advise given by someone who just thinks they know?
Been keeping fish for a couple of decades but first time having Uarus. They seem to have developed ich, but, I saw a mention of them having white dots on their body that LOOK like ich but is just part of their scales. Anyone has specific experience with this issue and Uaru? again, I know what ich looks like, and good with treatment, just don't want to treat needlessly Thanks!
Hey everyone! I’m not sure who might know how to diagnose fish diseases microscopically but I thought I’d share what I found on my neon tetra after I put it down today. I’d spent two months trying to treat it with salt, then herbal bacterial remidies, then maracyn, then salt again, etc. At first I thought I might be making progress but in general, the tetra stayed the same, not getting visibly worse or better. Its tank mate that had fin rot passed away at one point, but the snails got to it before I had a chance to examine the body. The album starts with a few pictures of its diseased tail. I took one picture of the healthy side of the tail at 60x, and then the rest of the images are the diseased areas. The last three are images of tissue that I sliced vertically through the diseased body area. Magnification is between 60-120x. I’m seeing a lot of things that look like tiny spreads of fungus, but I’m not sure if it’s really fungus or if it’s something else. If anyone has any ideas about what this could be I’d love to hear them! Otherwise this can just be for your viewing “pleasure.” 😅 https://photos.app.goo.gl/5cdWoUJxtGQUkkS28
Any ideas what I’m looking at on my female Nannacara anomala? Her anal vent is somewhat swollen and is trailing something behind. She is currently in a tank with just a male. Appetite and behavior seem normal. Pardon the torn fins. She was with a group of 7 N. anomala I was growing out for breeding and her fins got a bit torn up. No territoriality between her and the male she is with currently. I don’t believe this is Camallanus as no other fish she has been in contact with is present these symptoms and the protrusions are brown, floppy, and always visible.
