Hi All,

Here is one of my two dwarfs. I found a raised fluff on his nose this morning. Couldn't see this on any other body part, or other fish for the matter. It does not look like ick. could it be fungal/bacterial? Or maybe just scuffed off scale that hasn't floated away?

Tested NH3/NO2 0. W/C just last night.

his tail is slowly melting away now. and so are his lips.. he is also losing scales, but not bloody. he seems to be spitting out some white cottony stuff. :( poor him. i've QT him in a hospital suite.

its more like diseased skin thats falling off. An update, this morning his lip was entirely gone and rotting all the way back to the gills, he was now coughing up red stuff, i presume blood and internal organs that were also rotting away. From where the scales were falling off there was now a hole.

He was in pain so i euthanized him in the cold.

:(
