blue gourami has wierd ball
story time!!!(as usual) came home from school and blue gourami has a big ball on his left. right behind the gills, its about the size of of a grape, and scales protrude only in that area. other ailments i have spotted are the tip of the fins are rotting. ohh, and darker color. i dont have a cam cause i ....kind of... dropped it in my tank :oops: . hehe, sorry but i will try to get a pic in as possible, any ideas on what it could be?
hes gone, it was so fast. never seen anything killa fish in less than 8hrs.
most likely some kind of bacteria infection resulting in fin rot. Sometimes bacterial infections will cause fluid buildup in some areas, resulting in a "balloon-like" growth.
Is it like a pine cone effect ?
pinecone disease is another term for dropsy which is still a bacterial infection. If you ever see this again, seperate the fish and treat with an antibiotic. Adding Epsom salt to the water too will serve as a laxative in a way and help the fish dispell any built up fluid. Dropsy can cause the whole body to bloat or it can be organ specific and cause a bulge on the body. Fortunately its not very contagious but still keep an eye on your other fish and make sure the water quality is good.
well, it was like a pine cone effect, but it was only present in one spot on the body, not all over.
