Injured or Disease Praecox??
the pic. Heres the story.
I received some bad advice from Petco before I found this forum. My son has a small tank and I was told that I needed an algae eater for it, they suggested a CAE. After having with issues with the small tank (high nitrites and 1 guppy dieing) I removed the CAE and put in my 29G tank not realizing that they tend to be aggressive fish, got the little tank under control.
However, since putting the CAE in the 29G tank I lost 3 danios (originally thought it was internal parasites) and 1 male GBR (no idea why, has been eating well and swimming well did notice him flashing occasionally). Tonight got home and started feeding the fish and noticed the Rainbows injury/disease and the dead GBR. The hurt Rainbow is swimming near the surface and swimming slowly, I don't think he will make it long.
The other 3 Rainbows appear perfectly fine. Any idea on whether the CAE could cause this or is it something else?
Water readings are:
Edited to Add: It almost looks like a burn or the scales were removed?
