Zac Posted April 9, 2022 Share Posted April 9, 2022 Hey all, I have an Apisto who isn’t doing too well. Nitrates are 10ish, nitrites and ammonia are at 0. He’s been isolating himself for 3 days and hasn’t been eating. Once in a while he will flash and make a squirming movement. I’m treating with general cure but today I noticed his scales are peeling away on his left side. The area is pale around it. I noticed some odd behavior a week or so prior to this happening however I pushed it off thinking it was no big deal. For example, when I stirred up the substrate while doing a water change he would flash once and then he would act fine until I stirred up the substrate again a week later. So I figured maybe a small amount of debris got in his gill or something. Also, he would hide but still come out to eat so I thought he was fine. He shares a 30 gallon tank with tetras, corys, a pleco, and some otos. They’re all doing great except for him. What kind of infection am I dealing with? I’m treating for parasites (not ich).
