Hi friends 3 days ago I noticed a small white fluff on my ranchu's wen. I thought it might have not been anything since I had just treated with powder prazi & it may have been a prazi granule since they do not fully dissolve (that I have noticed). so.. I checked back a few hours later and the spot had become bigger and fluffy. when I removed him from the tank, the fluffy fell out and a shallow hole with surface blood at the opening was observed: in setting up QT, which only took about a half hour or 40 mins, another site appeared, just below that one and closer to the eye once I noticed this, I contacted dnalex for his opinion and waited a reply: about another 4 hours passed where I saw another site forming on the left that looked bigger than the one on the right, alex had responded, QT was up and we were ready to treat.. here's the left side site: we both agreed, it was nothing more serious than a superficial bacteria forming a surface infection. and so we agreed to commence treatment with Tri-Sulfa (if anyone in AU needs this medicine, please PM me, I have plenty ) as well as some Metronidazole added to the water. the following morning, I checked on Mr. CC and the left site was looked worse but from how Alex explained it to me, it shows all the good signs of healing in this photo, you can see that both sites on the right have already taken to healing well. this is an interesting photo, you will see how the fluffies just come away from the wound as a long cotton string. they trail the fish round and round the tank until they fall off: I microscoped the cotton like strand to see if there was anything moving.. all I observed were lots of fibres and nothing more: this is ending day 3.. there are no new sites that have presented and the healing process seems to be speedy about 15 hours ago: about 5 hours ago: and a big thank you & happy dance for Uncle Alex and all his wonderful knowledge & guidance. an absolute asset to this community. Thank You my friend we still have a few more days to a week or even more, depending on what pace the finer detail takes to heal.. overall, we're very happy
