Gourami- brown spikes from anus and white cotton string
I have a 10 gallon tank with a dwarf gourami that originally had brown spikes coming out of his anus (check pic). I bought medicine to treat worms and followed the instruction of 1 dose, wait 48 hours for another dose, and then 48 hours for a 25% water change. Now the gourami still has the brown spikes but seems to be excreting a white cotton like string. Any ideas of what this could be? Is this good because he is getting rid of something?
Its a 10 gallon tank with a gourami and pacosomus(sp?) only. Typically fed flake food in AM, and brine shrimp every other PM.
What kind of medication are you using? I've never had luck with soluble meds for internal parasites- the feed-through seem to be best. As for the white discharge, it may just be feces, which tend to turn white and stringy during parasite infestations.
