Question about BN catfish

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I just noticed that one of my bristlenose catfish has lost a whole section of scales on either side of the body along its back half.

I havn't had catfish for long and wasn't sure if this was normal (malting as they grew) or if it might be a disease or attacks from other fish.

Any advice from those ofyou that have kept catfish for a while would be great.

The catfish is only about 2cm long and has just been moved into its current tank.

It was moved with three other juveniles of the same size and species and they all appear fine. Behaviour of all fish including the catfish in question appears to be normal, all are feeding...

Any suggestions.

the way you described it

"has lost a whole section of scales on either side of the body along its back half"

sounds like it was caught in something and has broken free. don't worry too much, maybe chuck in some melafix etc. and keep an eye on the situation.

cheers hope that helps.
