Jmcloonan Posted April 14 Share Posted April 14 (edited) Unfortunately I believe it’s time to medicate my moderately planted/hardscaped 150gal. I was losing one Melon Barb every other week to this pimple/sore looking situation and recently culled all of them when I moved the tank into my new house a month ago. I just noticed yesterday that one of my Diamond Tetras now has it and I want to sort it out before I lose anything important. I was tempted to call this Columnaris but I’m not sure after some research. It starts with a bump on their side, then an angrier bump with scales coming loose around the site, then some redness and broken skin. The fish will be dead within 3 days. I assume I have to pull all these plants if I treat the tank? Nothing is glued down so it’s not the worst thing. I would have to take all the hardscape out to get these fish into a quarantine tank. I’ve got 10+ $100ish plecos in the rocks as well as assorted tetras and Cories. Can someone identify this disease and/or recommend a medication plan for me? Any input is greatly appreciated. Solid water quality, pH 7.2-6.6 with CO2, NO3 typically 20-30, GH/KH 3/6, temp 78. Edited April 14 by Jmcloonan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
