Ok so about a week ago i noticed Scarlet (my most expensive female, cost me $15) had a SMALL wound on her jaw. I immediatly caught and QT'd her i added a little melafix as i dont have AQ Salt.
EDIT: I do not know how the original wound came about the only tink i can think of is a bite from another female, there is nothing sharp in the tank at all.
so with her container floating in another tank to keep her warm and daily water changes were only seeing progressive degeneration of the wound.
I left her to stay unstressed for a week but have to photograph it to show you all because my partner told me to euthanise but the last fish I said to euthanize turned out to heal nicely, but this is worse and the wound seems to be eating away at her face.
Shes still eating 3-4 pellets or live food, she will eats what offered.
Water is RO so as good as can be no need to add water conditioner.
all her water changes ive floated a 2nd container in the tank so her changes are the same temp, all my tanks sit at 77-79 temp
heres the pics from today:
these pics so close make it look so awful!
