Endler injury or fungus?


Recommended Posts

2 days ago I noticed a white patch on a female endler's face. I freaked out at first but convinced myself it was probably an injury. Since it happened so quickly, I figured she ran into a piece of driftwood sometime in the night. Resolved to keep an eye on it and see if it got worse or better

But this morning, there's a little dingly bit and I just cannot tell if it's fungus or not:


Her energy and appetite seem normal. No other recent fish deaths or maladies.

Whaddya think?

It difficult to tell it could be fungal infection or just an injury I would Qt treat with aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 3 just to be on the safe

Yeah...tough thing is my QT is being used for new fish and I'd rather not give them whatever this is, if it's disease. And catching these buggers is so hard in a big tank full of plants like this. Might wait 1 more day and see if it's looking better. Otherwise, I do have maracyn, it'll just suck to try to dose the whole tank for 5 days.
