Symptoms and Treatment
His apperance has changed. He has what appears to be a large red sore or moss growing on his face in between his eyes(mainly on his left side)
His behaviour has changed a bit. He still swims and eats but he refuses to flare at me like he used to.
I started noticing changes when I got back from my four day vacation. I had forgotten to change his water before I left and when I returned the algy was pretty bad. I thought cleaning his tank would fix the red sore but it did not.He has had it for about three days now.
I have not started treating him as I don't know what he has. That's what I'm hoping to find out.
He has no history of being ill. He was injured once when I put him in a smaller bowl to clean the algy out of his bigger bowl because the algy got out of hand. That was when I discovered he should not be in direct sunlight because it makes algy grow like crazy. He jumped out of his smaller bowl and ripped a few of his fins but made a great recovery
I have had my fish for 5 or 6 years now
Those are your basic questions answered, I've also taken pictures (as best I could) and a video where he is in a 15 gallon aqarium with a bubbler. I moved him there because there is crushed coral in ithe tank and I'm hoping it will help kill whatever he has. In the video he is not swimming around like he usually does. He seems to be afraid of the camera and wants nothing more than to hide from it.
(Incase the Attachments don't work)
Please help me figure out what he has so I can treat him! I've searched google and it was useless. :/
