No I had them for about a year. Yes I tested the water everything is good so far. I did recently transfer all my fish to a bigger tank (It is cycled) because they needed an upgrade.TWiG87 said:He definitely looks a little rough. Its been years since I had mine, but I don’t remember that appearance. His fins look pretty tattered as well. Are they new to the tank? Have you tested your water?
My silver dollar looks kinda like fuzzy in someA201 said:
I think they are getting worse? Because they kinda look like their skin is peeling off but it's not their skinA201 said:
I got some of the stress guard stuff and I added it in the tank today,TWiG87 said:I would start with A201’s recommendation of stress coat. Also, increasing your water change frequency won’t hurt.
I don't notice any gold or yellow dust like particles on it. The patches are just white and kinda fuzzy looking? Maybe they aren't fuzzy but they look fuzzy to meA201 said:The SD is much worse. Looks like actual tissue is peeling from the body. That is a symtom of Oodinium / Velvet. Do you notice any gold or yellow dust like particles on the SD?
Yeah the other fish are doing wellA201 said:IMO, you're either dealing with Velvet or Columnaris? Are the tank mates okay & do you have a hospital tank?
Is that the only way it can spread to other fish?A201 said:Oodinium is extremely contagious, so having healthy tank mates likely rules that out.
Columnaris, a bacterial disease, is usually fatal, even after antibiotic treatment. It can spread if tank mates are allowed to graze on a dead infected corpse.
Its best to remove the infected fish asap and either treat the disease with antibiotics or euthanize.
Sorry I didn't recognize the illness earlier.
Afterwards, do a 50% water change & keep watch on the tankmates.
