Hi, just this morning i noticed my gourami with a white spot directly in the middle of his head.It looks whispy so I wonder if it is a fungal infection? i raised the temperature to 86 and rigged up an airpump. I will go down to the LPS and get some salt and meds. Which meds would be good?If i add the salt to the tank will the corys cope? Should i move them? If i move them will that infect my other tank? will I have to medicate that tank as well as I use the same equipment for both tanks?

No other fish look in danger except for slightly red gills which i am treating with daily water changes. The ammonia is almost undetectable as is the nitrite. What should i do?!!!!

Were your fish acting funny prior to getting the white spot? Was this a new fish you just added?

Before you get any meds, just try raising the temperature and doing a gravel vacuum.

I'm sorry about this but I have to go to a sleepover at my friends house in a couple of hours so i have to get the meds now.

Is it like fluff?
Some of my fish have had it and it just went away. I didn't even do anything.

Good to know its not what my fish had. A water change might help.

Lol, my dad gets angry if I make a mess too.

hi guys ive just started school, sorry i haven't been keeping you posted.

this morning I found a tetra stuck in the filter and another dead in a swordplant. Its definitely fungus, with some fin rot. My gourami's covered with the infection and my 2 tetras are too. This is becoming desperate now. I am treating with Myxazin for 4 days with not much as for results. What should I do?

PLEASE HELP!!!

im really sorry guys, too much school, too much caring for fish and to top it all of, my grandma has to get her finger amputated!

anyway (sigh), my gourami was on its backside trying to breathe in the corner of the tank, so we put him to sleep , and the other tetras scuicided into the filter. but my cories are doing great! they show no signs of even looking sick. they are swimming around as normal, not psyco or lethargic, and do not have fin rot of red gills. I think the dangers over (finally)!

I will miss my fish, especially the gourami. thanks anyway guys
