Hmm....perhaps one of the other boys got him through the divider, it happens sometimes. But he really doesn't look like he bit himself....

So, now he's looking a little worse. I've started treating with melafix and primafix as of last night because his tail is even shorter than it was, and the 'white fuzzy' spot has turned into an almost open wound. The scales seem to be missing now. Also a small white fuzzy patch is developing on the other side right behind his eye. Here are some pictures but their not great quality...What do you all think? Should I keep treating with the primafix and melafix?

I don't know what's wrong but it looks like what my PK boy Kreios (RIP) looked like before he died. I thought he was cutting himself on the slate in the tank even though he'd been in there for months with no problem. He got wounds on his body that were fuzzy, raw and then healed. Eventually he died though, even after I removed him. His existing wounds just wouldn't heal any more and the "scabs" fell off and he died :(

I would treat him like DF and others have said...

I think he has fungal infection. I would use Jungle Fungus Eliminator. As for the tail, I'm not sure. Does it get worse everyday?
