fish wounds


Recommended Posts

Hey all, my msobo have been a pretty relaxed fish with lots of breeding, but out of the blue a number of the fish in my 3m 10f colony had wounds on their heads and side, with a few of these having nipped fins. There are also two peacocks and a kadango in the tank. One of the peacocks has a large wound on the side and the other has bumped their eye.

While I suspect that the dominant male msobo, which doesn't have any marks (or the kadango), have any wounds, I'm wondering how best to treat them. I'm adding melafix, but should I treat with anything else. Some fish have lost some colour and they are not feeding well.

Water changes are weekly, fish fed nls, ph around 7.6.

this had happened to me i dont know if this helps but i noticed that 1 or 2 of my fish had some scratches i posted and was told to add some more salt.

i did and all turned out well,

it helped with 2 thing i think the scratches were from a pre out brake of white spot

so the salt help prevent an out brake and the healing process have a close look to see if they are scrating more than normal?

but maybe not in your case because of the nipped fins?
