Sore/ulcer on Dwarf Gourami

Still treating with the Kanamyin, but I haven't noticed any improvement. The Binox is in the mail, should be here soon.

But the 'white' part of his sore seems to be standing out more; It almost looks furry like cotton. Is this a separate infection, like fungus? Or is it just the dead tissue sloughing off?

Anything else I can do for this little guy? The last few weeks he has been acting normal but the past few days he's been less active and isn't eating very much.

Well, he died this afternoon. Checked on him about an hour ago and he was still swimming around, but he was breathing really fast and his scales seemed slightly raised.

But I just found him stuck to the filter intake, looking all dropsied. :(

I'm sorry. :( I'm also fighting to save a sick fish right now so I know how rough that is.

Well, I let his carcass sit in the hospital tank overnight because I didn't want to deal with it. This morning I checked on it, and his body was covered in that same white fluffy stuff that was on his nose before he died.

So I'm thinking he died of a fungal infection?
