Scrape on fantail


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

I was doing a water change for my fantail and as I was siphoning water, he panicked and smacked into my HOB... He now has a scrape on his left gill with a little bit of skin still attached :( ... He seems to be breathing and swimming ok, but it looks like it bothering him a little... Is there anything I can do for him?? I have stress coat, melafix, prazi, aquarium salt, and Metro Med's on hand!

He is currently on Prazi due to some scale loss...
