Help needed

Postby Marcashugo » Sat May 01, 2021 3:30 am

Hi all, my red jewel cichlid scale seems like coming off. Can someone help and advise me what I can do? He's still active and able to eat. Besides scale, one eyes kinda cloudy. I've try to salt bath for about 1hour and putting it back to the tank.

What you describe is most often the result of fish living in poor water conditions. Can you tell us about the tank, how often you do water changes, etc. Need more detail of how the fish lives day to day
1500 gallons of South and Central American cichlids. Some with a "wee" bit of attitude.
