White streak on flowerhorn


Recommended Posts

Sorry no personal experience with flowerhorns been tempted though. 

I don't think shredding would look quite like that hopefully someone more experienced will step in. 

The best thing I feel we can do for fish is keep the water pristine while they fight things. The treatments mentioned in there links sounds pretty comprehensive.

Best of luck got my fingers crossed for you

Thank you so much for the reply!

it looks like epistylis.  Do you have experiences with FH shedding?  I was curious if he was ill or shedding

If it's Epistylis you want to treat with kanaplex in food

@Flumpweesel Thank you so much for your kind words!  Currently doing 50% WC + salt bath.  
This was my first FH.  I would highly recommend if you have space.

@Coluim currently doing salt bath, can I feed kana-led while doing salt bath?  Heard you do one to not stress the fish.


also, I currently don’t have focus rn, is their an alternative ingredient?  Or can I use it without focus?

You can do both kanaplex is more effective against Epistylis salt is effective as Epistylis feeds off the bacterial on the skin of your fish and spread more rapidly at higher temperatures
