Growth on Plec
Hello, and Happy New Year!
I would be very grateful for some help identifying and treating a growth that has appeared to one side of the mouth on my Plec.
I've attached a photo of the plec - I'm sorry it is a little blurred, but I haven't yet mastered the art of taking pics of my aquarium. I think it is, however, clear enough to show the problem.
At the moment, the fish seems ok apart from the offending growth.
Any suggestions would be very appreciated. Thanks.
i never seen that that is crazy good luck finding out what it is
Hi... there is another post in this thread about a bump/growth on a tetra. I don't have experience with odd growths... knock on wood (I've been engaged in a war with ich for what seems like forever), but I found a website that seems to be pretty thorough on the subject. It has lots of pictures to try to help diagnose the disease, cause, treatments, etc. Here is a link: Tropical Fish Disease Identification with pictures and cures.
I really hope this helps... it seems like a good place to start, at least. Good luck and please keep us posted.
Thank you both for the suggestions.
I did a water change in the tank last weekend, and have medicated with a general purpose medication. The plec likes to hide, so I haven't been able to see the growth clearly, but having had a glimpse yesterday, I am hoping that the growth has reduced. We'll see.
