yea the one on the right started first and the one on the left has just come about in the past week or so. he has had this for about a month and i havent treated it with anything but salt and high heat. i dont know what it is so its hard for me to treat. and he has had the sore for almost a month.
I would move him to a hospital tank and try some erythromycin or sulfa for 7 days, to see if there are any improvements. After that, I'd follow up with daily water changes and Melafix for a week or so.
well the joke in my house is that he has herpes lol... :lol: is there anyway i could just treat the whole tank then if its a parasite??
here are his tankmates.. they all appear fine, and like i said his attitude, appitite and everything is fine. he dont act like he is sick at all.
But if it's parasitic, the erythromycin or sulfa might not help. I advised that to keep the chances of infection down, while we try to determine what the cause is. I don't think it's a parasite, I'm willing to bet he just scraped the top of that bump off on something, but it's hard to be sure.
(Very nice blue socolofi there!)
I will be away from my pc for a few days, but Robin will check in with you, I'm sure. (On my way home to Kentucky!)
well the flesh lookin bump was first, and it actually looked like he had a pellet of food stuck in his nose, about 4 days ago is when it got worse, but the other large knots appeard about 2 weeks ago. but like i said it just started out with the fleshy looking bump first.
