This is my old boy Lorkhan. He has some mystery disease on his head. Nit sure if it's age related or not. He's had it since I got him last year from a previous owner who had him for a while. It hasn't killed him for months. I've treated for velvet, hole in the head, but not columnaris yet. I've used ich-x (for velvet), paracleanse, and metroplex. I've been thinking about kanaplex next. What do yall think? If you need more pictures I gotchu. And yes, he's a little hefty here, but we've since worked on his weight a bit ;)
