    Hi all.
    Can anyone please help me figure out what is wrong with my Gourami. i have had him 4 weeks and in the last week or so have noticed this. He is still active and eating like a champ. Tank mates are around 30 Cardinals, 10 Rasboras and 10 Cory's. They are not showing any signs or anythin at all.
    Water tested and all good.
    Any ideas?

    Hi DoubleDutch.
    Thanks for your reply. Is this disease contagious and can the others in my tank catch it?
    Thanks
    EDIT - I did some googling and have learnt its very contagious, but mostly to other guramis. I will remove him from the tank. should i be concerned about the cardinals rasboras and Cory's catching it? i wasn't able to find much about other fish being effected?
    Sorry for all the questions..

    Other DG'e possibly (there is a lot unknown when they catch it). Other fish won't.
