Sick angel, not healing, but eating well
Hey guys, I am new to this forum but I have been fishkeeping for a couple years. I recently noticed that two of my angels formed a breeding pair, but have not had a chance to breed them yet. but in the last 2 months my female angel has developed sores on her body, one on her gills that has eaten right through. She still feeds aggressively and is usually the first one to the top, but i notice that she looks stressed (obviously).
I thought it might be hexamita because she once had that a year ago, pus in the feces and all, which she recovered from with medication. For this recent infection I have tried Aquazole, General Cure (metronidazole/praziquantel) thinking it may be parasitic/fungal but they have had no effect. The strange thing is that it does not appear contageous, as my other angels who are usually in close proximity to her have been just fine, I have isolated her today just in case. I am unsure how to proceed. I also have tetracycline but have not tried it yet.
Please take a look at the pic and help if you can! I really dont want to lose her since she is such a survivor was once a beautiful fish.
