Something weird with crayfish's tail
Hi there, there appears to be something wrong with my crayfish's tail. On one of the little 'tail fins', not sure what theyre actually called, there appears to be a fungus infection maybe? Not too sure but it looked white and a little fluffy and it also seems that the outline of it looks 'burnt' like a brownish colour. Im thinking its mostly a fungus infection or something similar and im not sure how to treat it. Ill try to post a picture of it soon. I was thinking if i let her moult, itll probably go away with the moult but im not sure. Thanks for any help.

Im guessing you are talking about the disease called "ick" many fish get can use basic fungus fish treatment that you can get from your local pet store hope this helps! :)

it's not ich. Inverts do not get it.

If it's white/tan and under her tail, she could be carrying eggs.

yea its definetely not ich, ive seen in it fishes before and i know thats not it, but thanks for the suggestion anyways.
its not under her tail either and i know shes not carrying eggs, its a little orangy bump on the tip of the tail but yesterday i decided to remove it manually, not sure if it was for the better but it was like some orange tissue, still unsure of what it was. theres another thread with a pic of it which i posted (i kinda posted this topic 3 times cause i kept forgetting to put a picture with it and didnt know how to delete the posts :s)
