ab1990 Posted October 24, 2022 Share Posted October 24, 2022 (edited) I have a 20gallon long quarantine tank for which I just adopted 10 black ruby barbs at my local fish store about 2 or 3 days ago as well as a dwarf blue gourami. I am using filter media from my cycled tank and a spare heater for my quarantine tank. I am glad I decided to quarantine, as I noticed one of them has a red, protruding lesion. I am not familiar with this problem, but extensive googling has led me to maybe red pest? Aka hemorrhagic septicemia. The only medication I have currently is ich x, and I did do one dose of that only because I know it is a broad-ish medicine for some infection and I felt like I had to do *something* Note- these pictures are from 24 hours before this post. The sore is slightly redder and darker now, not much larger though. The fish is not pineconing and it does not have ich (others elsewhere have commented those issues, but it is just the scales shimmering in the light giving that illusion). There appears to be something white-ish at the tip of the protrusion, It doesn't appear to move or anything like a worm, perhaps it's just part of flesh.
