Black Spot

Post by mariusmeyer » Tue Feb 20, 2007 3:55 am

Hi Pam.

My malawis have black spot and I would like to know how it could be cured. I do water changes of 50 - 60 percent a week since I have an overstocked tank. Water quality is good. There is no real agression in the tank appart from the ocational squarril. What can I use to to get rid of the black spot? Thank You

Hi marius,

I would have to see it to see what you are exactly talking about. Sometimes foods can effect their coloring, as well as fungus. If they are acting okay, and other then looking funny, I wouldn't panic. We probably just need to do a little dectetive work to see what it might be.
