Potential fish TB (tuberculosis)


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a female guppy that I purchased several months ago. A month ago, I noticed a red line from the anal fin to dorsal fin and the anal fin was reddish throughout. I initially thought it might have been a self-sustained injury. Recently I put the guppy through the med trio treatment. Halfway in to treatment (day 3 or 4), I noticed that the scales looked like it was popping out. I did a 30% water change on day 7 and today would be day 11. The area looks slightly improved but I'm unsure. The pictures below are from yesterday. The fish eats well but is a bit skittish. I initially put this guppy and several other fishes because to quarantine, the other fishes look fine currently and is in another tank. The current water parameters are:

  • pH - 6.8
  • Nitrates - 10-20
  • Hardness -150-300
  • Nitrite - 0
  • Ammonia - 0
  • KH/Buffer - 80-120
  • Water Temperature -73-74

Does this look like fish tb? Or is it some type of infection that could be treated?

Thanks for your help!

What I would do is Qarantine and add some Aquarium salt 1table spoon for 2 gallons for one week if you notice her getting worse then I would add some maracyn to her 1 quarter of a packet of maracyn 1 table spoon of pellets 1 scoop of seachems focus 1 cap of garlic guard a few drops of water mix well and feed a small amount twice a day for 7 days you can store any leftover medicated food in the fridge
