Does this mean internal parasites? If it is what do I treat it with? I have inverts and scaleless fish
What do you mean by veggie rounds? Should I feed them?Veggie rounds.
They aren't white humps, they are just humps. I'm a nurse and it makes me think that it's internal parasites because the humps could be from calcium depletion via worms. I could be wrong though. I will get a pic for you. Thank you for your reply. This whole thing is just so sad.Would it be possible to see any pictures of the white humps?
I breed both corydoras and guppies.
It really does not look like culmanaris at all. No white patches anywhere on any of them. Actually, every time I take a dead fish out of there the past week they look pretty healthy. I'm stumped.Unfortunately I feel like this might be columnaris. Look up some pictures. It attacks both inside and out, deaths are constant and corydoras are usually last affected. It's when they peck at the dead guppies they get sick.
Here is one of the babies. It looks like I will lose her tonight. She's so pretty too. They don't get much thinner than this before they die.Most likely not columnaris. I've had this before though and it's very contagious. Especially among females
Thank goodness. I love those little guys. I can sit and watch them play with each other for hours. What you are doing with breeding guppies so they will be stronger for hobbyists like me is honorable in my opinion. I don't know if we are allowed to share info on this forum. Time for me to read the rules. But if you sell guppies online I would love to finally find some that are hardy. That's if you ship fish. Thanks again.You know , I have raised thousands of corydoras and have ever only lost 1 to sickness. They live in every guppy tank I have had and have never gotten sick except the 1. The disease that you currently have never affected my corydoras so I think they will be fine.
I believe that you are correct with what my guppies have. I don't know what else it could be but this. Thank you and I will get some levamisole online right now.I've been dosing levamisole to treat some new fish with camallanus worms. While researching it, I recall it being mentioned as an effective treatment for "wasting disease"/"livebearer's disease". I'm not familiar with the disease (if it is a specific disease?) but what you and DeanEllenFins describe sounds like what I've read about it.
Levamisole is a different kind of deworming agent so it may succeed where General Cure did not.
I bought mine on eBay but there are other online vendors including a drench solution on Amazon. I did not follow the seller's included instructions, which would have resulted in a dose of 13+ ppm.
