Sarah Posted May 12, 2021 Share Posted May 12, 2021 Help!! Cherry barb female was plump (like the other 4) when arrived, however now has a swelling on one side which has gone red, presumably due to stretched skin. Looks like a hard pea sized lump under the skin. Am treating with pimafix and melafix and have had some ammonia issues, currently being treated by a round of seachem prime and stability. Will do 25% water change this week due to melafix/pimafix. Eating and swimming fine. Question is do I remove and euthanize as have no hospital tank available or do I just hope it's not parasites which may burst out and spread? Had barbs now for about three weeks. Ammonia 1.0 (captured by prime) pmm Nitrates 0 Nitrites 20 ppm Temp 26' C Planted tank with juveniles only 6 cherry barbs 11 neon tetras 2 rainbow fish 3 guppies 1 pleco Picture of cherry barb to follow.
