dwarf gourami..
Came home and found 1 of 4 dead gourami :[
Not sure how it died but it looked like peeling around its mouth, where you can see red, also red sores around its head area
And checked on another DG and see that it has peeling scale around its mouth too :[
what can this be?

Can you get a picture?

What is the ratio of male DGs to females?

What is the sex of the live DG with peeling around its mouth?

What is the sex of the deceased DG?

Please fill this out, I really can't tell you anything without knowing the water stats.


How big is the tank?

Is it uncycled or cycled?

How much water do you change?

How often do you change the water?

Please try to answer these to the best of your ability. If you do not have a test kit, please bring a sample of tankwater to the nearest local pet store. They should test it for cheap, but most of the time free. Write the actual numbers down, don’t take ‘okay’, ‘low’ or ‘fine’ for an answer.
