wound or disease?

Postby jgrillout » Thu Jul 30, 2020 6:33 pm

I noticed today on of my lemon jakes has what looks like a flesh wound no the top of his head. There no other injuries. This to me is odd because typically I see the results of aggression are torn fins. I was concerned this could be a disease until I saw the star sapphire in a stand off face to face with the other lemon jake. Should I be concerned that it could be a disease?

Post a clear picture in the Illness forum.

You are right most injuries are a missing scale or a nipped fin.
