mouth rot

Post by stingyraisin » Thu Nov 24, 2005 10:49 am

Dear Pam,

I recently had to break down my tank and restart due to hurricane katrina. The tank has been set up for about 45 days and all was well. I woke up this morning and found that my Hap Moori had mouth rot and my Sunshine Peacock has it on the dorsal fin I have had a problem with this in the past and know that if it is not treated soon all fish will eventually perish. Please recommend a treatment that will cure this problem.

Hi Derek,

It is not possible to diagnose fish with out actually seeing them. Treating with the wrong medication can be worse then no medication. It is bad enough when I kill my own fish let alone someone elses, so I am always hesitant.

Just make sure you water is clean, and increase your water changes. Treat with something that is for a fungus if you are sure thats what it is.

I hope you can cure it this time.
