Injured Black Moor
Noticed this yesterday. Looks like he scraped his side on a rock, don't think another fish would commit that.
Sorry about bad quality of the pics, my camera sucks. Should I be really concerned about this? When looking closely at it, there is no cottony substance on it, so I don't think it's a bactrerial infection. Should he be placed in a hospital tank and treated with anti-biotics? Or should I just let him be and keep an eye on it for a few days?
what are his tankmates?
3 Fancy goldies, 6 Zebra Danios, 1 Common Pleco, 1 Tiger Pleco, 2 Weather Loaches
Heard stories of plecos sucking on the sides of goldies, but I have never seen that, and I don't think the wound would look like that from a pleco sucking on his side. Hopefully he just scraped his side on a rock.
yea...that would be my guess...especially since i see alot of rock in the background...i would just keep a close eye on it and make sure it doesnt get any fuzzy patches, etc.
Yeah that's what I'll do. I got a spare 10 gallon tank just incase I need to use mediation if it gets any worse. Thanks for the response.
no prob! hope your fishie gets better! <3
plecos? never seen plecs do that but cae do that. idk what i could be doesnt realy look like tb any sharp rocks in the tank?
Try Melafix for treatment. Good water quality will also allow the wounds to heal but Melafix can be added to speed up the healing process.
Oh and Joe, I do have some jagged rocks in there, built a few caves with them. Sometimes my goldies try and squeeze in them, and I'm thinking that's what happened.
Melafix is all natural so it's perfectly fine to use in your main tank :thumbsup:
