Please just don't do what one girl did on here. She did 5 antibiotics and the poor angel looked horrible. I told her most like after the 2nd or even 3rd it was not bacterial. Try a different class to treat. You're torturing it. Two meds Max for each type. That's why it's good to plan. It was protozoan I think. It was losing its skin.
Maybe he's resting to conserve energy is he can't eat as much as he'd like to?
Turns out its not his gill. I looked at him when I got home and its actually his fin..where is connects to his body...on both sides...his gills are normal.Wow your angel is getting to look like my loaches. Most of my loaches had gills like that. I am uncertain which type of worm (like gill flukes) that came out of one following treatment or protozoan was also causing the wasting or in others-but my general one that treated both worked. I showed you the photo of one that had worms coming out of him following treatment. If that doesn't work, then you might use prazipro next because it will kill what some parasites that metronidazole or fenbendazole will not and is extremely safe- you just dump into water (people take it for its purpose).
So you're saying the red at the base of the fin is part of the gill above it?Umm, that is still considered the "gill" as far as diseases usually. That is my understanding. You just can't see deep into his gills. My loaches are practically transparent (well to a point) so I can see there
His gills don't seem as red. But I'm noticing some potential issues, but let's start one at a time. 1) it appears like he might have an anchor worm dangling from one fin or is it a pic artifact?
In his caudal fin, back one. Toward the bottom protruding outward. They are small if that's it. And also potentially one in the center. Let me edit a photo of it on another fish in a second
I know how you feel, I got hit hard with loosing some Angels recently. I hope he continues to recovers as it looks promising. Sending good vibes your way.
Ok... Well they are actually insects, so if it
was, treatment is different From any we've talked about. Some of mine have that too. But the thing in the middle too, threw me off. I see. Ok. No worries then. Mine had worms and or protozoans and suprinsgly even since treatment they are eating more than usual and so they ate until they are gigantic. Now are really fat.
It caught me off guard when I was feeding. By their verocity for food.
