Help identifying disease


Recommended Posts

I have a three-month-old south American cichlid tank. Water parameters:

  • pH 7.5
  • Nitrates <20
  • Hardness 
  • Nitrite 0
  • Ammonia 0
  • KH/Buffer
  • Water Temperature 80 degrees

I was away for a few days and returned to one sick fish in the tank. Does anyone know what this is?

Could be an injury caused by fighting I would add some aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 3 gallons and monitor for the next couple days if it's start to get worse then I would consider doing a course of kanaplex or maracyn2
