My fish had an injury about a month ago sustained to his pectoral fin. Most likely from a decoration or rock. Almost the entire fin has disappeared and white cottony fluffy stuff keeps growing in the area and stems out from his body. Also noticed it on the side of his gills.
I have tried melafix and pimafix and neither seem to work. I tried salt before that and honestly the salt worked better. It kept the problem at bay more. I'm sick of those nasty smelling medicines and they only seem to stink up the tank and make the problem worse.
I took fish out earlier to change the water and through the trauma swimming if being moved, most of the fungus fell off. I also used a qtip against him to remove even more. Yon can't even tell he is affected by that now but I guarantee when I check tomorrow it will be there again.
I have absolutely no idea what to do for my poor fish :( I'm sick of this fungus! I am trying my hardest to keep the tank clean but it is hard because it is an isolation 2 gallon tank where he is in a 10 gallon filtered tank normally.
What other options do I have? I feel like I have tried everything!
