HELP Clown Loach
My friend's clown loach is sick! This is how she described him to me.
His fins and whiskers look like they've been "melted"
He usually hangs out at the bottom, but he's been swimming up and down the tank
she's had him for 6 years
there's one other clown loach but he's fine
all other fish are unaffected
she tried ich medication and raising temps slowly
she thinks now its not ich but some kind of bacterial/fungal infection
she said that hes been acting strange but he kept hiding so she never really thought he was sick
the only recent additions to her tank were some new plants (rotala, anubias)
she hasn't done a water change in a while
she doesn't have a test kit
i'm hoping i can help test water parameters
do water change
find out whats she feeding and/or feed it
Any ideas as to whats wrong?
