See the gray patches around the snout? And behind the gill there? And the poor condition? He should have more meat on him. That boney ridge sticking out on his head.. should not be like that. That topline is bumpy .. not enough meat on him and it mycos tends to bump the spine up.

He has it.. it is a gradual wasting.

Stronger strain of WHAT?

WHEN will you face the fact you are probably dealing with MYCOS? For crying out loud. Would you tell a Dr that says you have cancer that is just a resistant flu bug? ALL evidence points to mycos.

RIVER BURIAL? What the heck is that? You never put a diseased fish into ANY water body. Fertilize your roses. Burn them or triple bag them and land fill them. If you put that fish in a water system that is totally irresponsible.

Excuse me??
He is far from "wasting away". You don't see any spine. Any "patching" you see if likely from the glass being spotty. And FYI, unless you somehow have another view of that same shot, you cannot see behind his gills. The white or grey spot on his head was from him getting a spook from my BIL slamming his mug on the kitchen counter. I see no "bumps" on his topline. His topline is straight.

That fish is not in a good condition. He is lean compared to what a happy healthy fish should be. And I can tell spots on a glass over ones on the fish. I have a pretty good idea of WHAT to look for as well as WHERE. His top line is not round and smooth and fleshed out. He is a bit hollow. There is a gre patch right behind his gill.. you can see the inflammation in the scales.

But I'm sure I don't know what I am talking about.. so just add salt and he will be better in the morning.

Apparently you don't. There are no "grey patches" and there is nothing wrong with him. Nit picking on someone's fish isn't something you should be doing(like the way you are) unless the person asks you to.

Lastly, if he wasn't fed properly then he would of already aten the shrimp in his tank.

Calm down, everyone, calm down.

Myco is a serious disease but let's not start to spread panic and let's not create an epidemic where they may not be one.

Every Post tonight has been the same thing BasementBettas. Why is that? They can't possibly all be the same thing.

Because it is VERY prevalent and no one wants to believe it. If you look at the head of that fish you can see patchy areas that are the start of the lesions. And there are already grey areas around the snout, If you look at the scales from the gill area back... you can see the start of it there in the scales. No need to believe me. That fish will prove me right in time. When he passes.. cut him open and look as all the pretty white speckles in all his organs.

If every single fish has Myco then we should just stop keeping fish.
