Not another sick fish?

    Any ideas?

    My two prized Denisons don't seem right, one has a puffy mouth and the other a red mouth, any ideas?

    Coincidene after one of my Bosmanis died?

    Puffy mouth, you say? Sounds like mouth rot. The other is bacterial, it seems. I hope your fishies get better!

    A friend treated her fish's mouth rot with kanamycin successfully. I just battled a bacterial infection on one of my swordtails with Tetra Lifeguard in a quarantine tank. She looks good as new. I would honestly use Tetra Lifeguard myself because it treats both fungus and bacterial infections. Be advised that it can wipe out your filter bacteria, as do a lot of antibiotics. I've noticed the use of Maracyn and Maracyn 2 simultaneously seems to be extremely popular on this forum, but I couldn't find it in my area and my fish needed treatment quick. Keep us updated!
