Did this resolve in your fish?
I think my Honey Gourami has something like this. I just noticed it on him but no idea what it is. Any help would be appreciated.


I have a 10 gallon tank with a dwarf gourami that originally had brown spikes coming out of his anus (check pic). I bought medicine to treat worms and followed the instruction of 1 dose, wait 48 hours for another dose, and then 48 hours for a 25% water change. Now the gourami still has the brown spikes but seems to be excreting a white cotton like string. Any ideas of what this could be? Is this good because he is getting rid of something?

Its a 10 gallon tank with a gourami and pacosomus(sp?) only. Typically fed flake food in AM, and brine shrimp every other PM.
