You may already know me as that gal who posted this earlier this week:
So I've been treating my fish, Shigeru, with 50% water changes and aq salt for 2 days, and today I noticed him having some partially raised scales on his tail (not tail fin, just the back end of his actual body). He's not inflated like a ball or anything, and his scales aren't sticking straight out horizontally, so I'm really confused - can something else other than dropsy cause raised scales? He's still energetic and alert and eats like a pig.
I consulted some aquarium shop staff who said it could be parasites of some sort, and they pointed out what seems to be have small patches of fungus growing on his mouth and head. Besides the fungus and raised scales, he also has graying patches. Should I be thinking of API Erythromyocin?
By now, I'm getting gray hairs as well...
