40 gallon tank parameters: temp 76 F
pH 7.4
Ammonia 0 ppm
Ni 0 ppm
Na 5 ppm

This is the third one. I don't know what to do. I think it's a symptom of something else, but when I tried to treat the others with general cure and kanaplex, nothing worked. I've put aquarium salt in the tank. The other fish (guppies and cories) seem fine. Thoughts? Here's a few pictures...

I can't really tell with the angles of the picture, but do the scales look like ones on a pine cone? Puffed out and sticking out?

No there was no pine coning. I thought it might be a parasite and treated with salt, but it didn't work. The gourami died before I could try a more aggressive medicine.
