    Hi, I´m pretty new to the aquarium hobby and don´t have experienced any illnesses/sicknesses in my fish thanks before, but recently I noticed that my female guppies started to get white areas on their body between their lower stomach and tail. In addition they also get white stringy poop...

    I may be on the verge of a catastrophe, and need help! I have already euthanized three cardinal tetras :( and my German Blue Ram seems to have it now! Description: It starts out as kind of a swelling of certain areas, like my ram has a swollen eye and mouth. It is white, not ich-like spots...
