panda guppy fungus


Recommended Posts


Discovered this panda guppy female with white fluffy protrusion on the left part of her mouth.

@Colu, can you watch the video?

Put her in quarantine and started Jungle Fungus Clear and Maracyn.

Is there more I should do in qt? I feel like I should add kanamycin.

Should I proactively dose the display tank with something like ich-x and maracyn/kanamycin/maracyn 2? Will have to remove shrimp, won't I?

Other details:

Tank is 1 month 10 days old.

After we discovered the sick guppy, my daughter performed 50% water change in the 10g display tank, though water was tested within acceptable ranges 2 days ago. Nitrates were 40ppm because we had dosed Easy Green.

The 3 panda guppies moved into the display tank 3 weeks ago. Five younger guppies and 1 cherry shrimp were in there 4 days before the pandas. So, total of 8 adult-sized guppy.

An additional amano shrimp was added 10 days ago. The most recent addition was a 25 day old panda guppy fry.

Some 20 guppy fry (likely from panda guppies) were born a week ago.
