Guppies falling one by one


Recommended Posts

Google has failed over and over on this one... It's been 4 weeks of fish dropping one by one 😔. I hope someone here can identify this problem easily!


My guppies have started to get portions of their bodies turn opaque and white, followed by death in ~72 hours. All ages, male/female, and families, all are randomly affected. I lose maybe 1/day to this.... 


Pictures attached

Looks like columnaris it's a gram negative bacterial infections that spreads more quickly at temperature over 75 and it can kill within 24hr to 7 days depending on the strain the Most effective treatment I have found is a combination of kanaplex and jungal fungus clear fizz tabs containing nitrofurazone following this treatment plan in severe cases it can take two full course of treatment back to back @trevor
