Otocinclus Mouth Issue


Recommended Posts

This is one of nine Otocinclus catfish I added into my community aquarium after quarantine. They don’t have any diseases. I added them all into the aquarium at once. The individual pictured got its nose stuck in a hole my large aquarium co-op net. The first thing I did to try and get it out was push it through. That was dumb as its mouth is white. Did I damage the slime coat? Can it heal over? The last picture is of the net where I cut it to get the fish out. I’ll tie it with fishing line so that I can still use this net. The fish is still breathing, swims forward occasionally and I added in Fritz Complete water conditioner after I added the otos
