so i have a white dwarf gaurami 3.5inches
i was out for 2days
so told my aunt to feed him exactly half the feed ,
but that weirdo fed him 4 whole feed balls!
Luckily but not sure he only ate 1 and i found 3 feed sunk in the tank when i returned home .

Idk y he didnt ate all, hes a filthy beggar n previously ate my other fish feed too by stealing from them!

Why didnt he eat all the feed now? And i saw red spots on his entire body ! His fins ,tail n head !
Zomfg tell what happened to him .
Wil he survive ? Or is it just red pimples like all teens have !
M freaked out totally ,
hes alone in a 10gallon tank
water parametrs all normal

he will always lean on top level of water with the tank . He only move when i force him to !
P.s. He knows me well .
Dont wana loose him ,hes my 1st fish !
Help help help .

Sorry your fish is sick. How long have you had him? A bunch of red sores on a dg kind of screams dwarf gourami disease to me unfortunately, which is considered incurable and leads to death in most cases. Can you post a picture of him? That would help members diagnose the issue.

In the meantime, daily pwcs and adding vitas chem and/or Kordons fish protector, along with soaking his food in garlic may help his immune system.

Ohhh, a 3 spot gourami is a different genus than dwarf gourami and I have not kept them, nor am I sure if they are sucseptible to dgd or not. You can google dwarf gourami disease for images and descriptions but basically its a virus that causes these lesions and general decline in the fish's health until death.

I'm sorry, I've not used aquarium salt to treat illness before so I can't advise you there. What are your parameters exactly and what kind of test kit are you using? A good first step would be a partial water change if you've not already done that.

Okay 3 spots need a tank 20 gallons or more due to them getting 6" long. Are the red spots all over his body? What is the temp of the tank? I would get Marcyn 2 as soon as you can. Until than do 20% water changes with a water conditioner until you can get the meds. My 3 spot Lucy had the red spots when I got her and after treating her with Marcyn 2 for 2 weeks she healed right up. But do NOT use salt it can make it worse.
