why do i get thefeelng I am gong to loose my 20G to some weird disease?
India is so pineconed she looks like her scales are gonna go shooting off, she was fine a few hours ago. She still acts fine. Can eating too much make them pinecone? she is floating ina cup with epsom. opal essence has what looks like an ucler on her tail end. I kinda want to treat the tank with furan 2 but not sure snails and plecos are OK with it.

WHat is this?

Tiki, it's a pineapple fish! A saltwater fish that gets up to about 9 inches and also, little patches of bioluminescent bacteria colonize on the cheeks and glow at night.

Snails do not like any meds but especially do not like copper based meds. I would treat the girls in a hospital tank.

EDIT: I want seahorses! But they're hard because they require almost constant feedings of live foods to stay alive. :(

Is there anything I can use that is snail friendly? I don't know what the problem is...I'm hoping NOT columnaris.
Ba sing Se -floats at the surface, staring out the back of the tank, at the wall. Normal?? Abnormal? Not really sure.
India - acts fine but is pineconned. Floating in Epsom
Opal Essence - looks like she has some weird leasion on her tail..maybe not. Hard to say due to her coloring, acts normal
Apple Bloom - seem normal
Zecora - fat but normal
Princess Azula - normal
Plecos - no idea. Haven't seen them.

Maybe I should try and catch all the snails? And then treat with Furan 2? I also have Tetracycline but supposedly that is not effective with high PH
General cure, fungus cure and several other parasite meds.
I might be able to get triple sulfa locally. maybe

Grace NEVER changes the water and her tank is to small, yet mine gets awsome care and I get sick fish. WTF

and these are pretty fishies:
