My step sons fish is very sick. We have tried Tetra's Fungus Guard (several treatments) and Tetra Lifeguard. As far as I know he has only had one treatment. I will try to find a way to post a picture of him. He started out with just a white patch on his body by his dorsal fin. We got him o the fungus guard and then it just got worse from there. The fungus guard says it clears fungus and bacteria.
I capitalized my answers hoping it helps visibility. HOpe it doesn't make it harder to read!
