I got some medaka rice fish last year, and noticed one had a mildly crooked spine and one a more severely crooked spine. I'm fairly new to fish keeping and thought it was a deformity maybe from inbreeding. I drove an hour and a half to pick them up I didnt want to bother returning them so never contacted the store. The fish that was more severely affected wasted away and died last month. Now the other fish is swelling in her dorsal region, so instead of tapering to the tail she is the same width almost all the way down her body. Could this be dropsy? And more importantly, is it likely from fish TB? Sorry, these were the best pics I could get.
Anyone dealt with Fish TB before? Im not certain I have it but very concerned and afraid I do. I have 3 fish tanks and lost over half my stock of fish from what appears to be multiple diseases. It started in my 75 gallon community tank with losing a few fish to no signs of illness or signs of anything on their body. Then it hit my Guppies by seeing them more inactive, less hungry and becoming skinny. I quarantined the sick ones I noticed right away and started Maracyn & paracleanse together. Few days later my guppy started having swimming problems like he couldn’t swim up from the bottom and got a real curved spine like he was bent. Day or two later same thing happened to another guppy and than died. So I tried other meds like Kanaplex and metroplex, did two courses and even tried with putting in their food. My guppies kept dying, one each day and other random fish like 3 serpae tetras, 2 panda loachs, rummy nose tetra, 2 German rams and a few others if you get the hint. I’ve also tried API General Cure, erythromycin, and Furan 2. It seems nothing has worked or stopped this disease. My guppies also have had worms this whole time, that hasn’t gone away either, they keep pooping out. I’ve had 12 guppies and down to 2. Lost at least over 20 fish. I’m ready to start over and try to bleach all my equipment but worried this could happen again and totally wipe me out of the hobby for good. I love this hobby and don’t know what to do??? Any help I really appreciate it.
