I have very sad news :(
The female who gave birth to my current spawn just passed away. :((
Yesterday i saw her with white stuff on her side, much like fungus but very aggressive since it looks like as if it has eaten her tissues already. and on that area of the body, "pine cone-ing" of the scales was also observed. I do not think it is Dropsy because the pine cone-ing was localized to the infected area. what could be the cause? is it just fungus? I medicated her with meth blue, and salt as soon as i diagnosed her. Please note that this happened overnight. The disease spread rather quickly.
Before i put her into the "hospital" container. I put her in a container where she was supposed to recover from the 'mating ritual' during the spawn. However, after 2-3 days she developed the so called fungus. I did water changes every other day(partial) to keep her water clean so she can recover from the fin damage.
What could be the disease? This has caused me 2 fatalities already, almost 3 but I think i was able to save the other one, (with the same medication).
Help me please guys! It looks awful and I don't want it to happen again!
