40 Gallon Tank What’s wrong with my lil homie ?

Burritoboy420

Hello hi everyone!

I’ve had this guy for almost a year and haven’t seen him like this before. He’s in a 39 gallon with a couple tetras, pleco, kennyi cichlid, electric blue acara all small.

Seems like he’s shredding or maybe has fungus? Noticed his eye getting cloudy couple weeks ago although figured it was just due to tank mates.
*kennyi cichlid
*blue acara

Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to Fishlore! :)

Do you have stuff to test your water? What are the readings? How often are you doing water changes?

It does look like some kind of fungus more than bite marks. Hopefully one of the cichlids people can help more.

Much appreciated:)

**Update:** Decided to start day one of tetra’s “lifeguard” treatment.

I’ve been doing about a 15% water change every week using all the correct water conditioners along with stress coat, ammo lock, & quick start in the change.

API kit recent reads:
Ph:8
Am .25ppm
Ni: 0ppm
Nitrate: 5.0ppm *0 on occasion
