    Is it possible to get a more close up picture? Might be easier for others to figure out what it is.

    I will try when I get home. He usually sticks to the back half of tank making it hard to get a good pic

    On another note until I can get a better pic, is the one on top in the first pic male or female? I

    Lights were off by the time I got home last night son I couldn't get a pic. I put some salt in until I can get home and try and get a better pic.
    If it is hole in head, what's the best course of action? I've never had to deal with it before.

    I didn't as well. It's a combination of a diet-issue (cause) and a flagelate to my believe. Esha Hexamita is a used med to my believe, but other members probably can give you more information.

    I only got them a couple days ago, so it's probably from the lfs. I'll hit up the store on my way home and see what they say.

    Seems like it is getting worse again. She is eating and swimming around just fine, but is being fairly aggressive to my male.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I know the pictures don't show it very clearly, but it's the best I can get at the moment.
