Red Rush

  1. virusmk Well Known Member Member

    Hi all

    Friend of mine called me moments ago asking for advice for his sick adult angel.

    He told me that fish have developed some sort of red rush starting from back fin and around its mouth and is spreading slowly around his body. Its looks like skinless fish on the area where the rush is.
    I will try to upload a picture once he manages to take one.

    Does anyone has any clue what this could be as i dont have much experience with angels.

    By the way 3 months ago he brought fish that later developed hole in the head but only that new arival was affected rest of his fish did not develop any symptoms.

    He told me that water parameters are good and at the moment he does not have ph but no amonia present in his tank

    Yes he mentioned that fish skin looks like an open wound, but untill i get picture of him cant say for sure

    Has the fish's behavior changed? Is anyone else in the tank affected?

    From looking at the pictures, what comes to mind is Fish Tuberculosis. Unfortunately, that would be very very bad and can be caught by humans. Here's an article about it.

    I've also seen suggestions that it could be coulumnaris but I am not sure. I do hope your friend is able to get this rash treated and end up with healthy fish.

    He always been lazy and swiming close to the surface for years.
    At the moment he is the onlyone with this other angels are not showing any signs of illness.

    It might be best to eutanize him in case of severe illness as it might be too late for any treatments if this is tuberculosis
