White Blotches on Platy Fins - Lathargic.
Bob, my platy, has suddenly become ill. She (yes she) was fine yesterday, but when I go check on the tank this morning, she is lathargic and had quickly growing white blotches on her fins.
It is a 10 gallon aquarium with a Aqua filter. I just replaced the cartridge the other day.
There are also 2 tertras I just placed in the tank, too though they seem fine.. I keep the water at about 72 degrees F.
Recently. since my last platy died a short while ago, Bob and Skittles, the other platy have been fighting. I'm wondering if it's fin rot from untreated injuries?
So, I need help asap so I can treat my poor Bob.
I've been doing some research on diseases and it appears not to be ich. I did pop on over to Walmart today and buy some dissolve-able medicine that kills ich, parasites and fungus infections. The spots are only on the fins and mouth and are spongy-ish. From what I've seen it looks like fin/mouth rot, since it's only on the fins and mouth. I don't have the peremeters at the moment, unfortunately. I have to buy a new testing kit. Hopefully the medicine will work well. I also bought a new female platy today to keep the male from harassing poor Bob so much. the meds will also kill any bacteria the new fish might be carrying.
