Trouble in Paradise! Help Quinn!


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

So, 2 days ago I noticed a white pimple on Quinns wen and did an 80% wc. I easily wiped away the upper surface part. Late last night I notice a white spot on his tail and red streaking of his tail and reddened vent :(

His behavior is unchanged and Quinn is eating like a champ and swimming just like normal. I took a video, but I'm at work right now and am having internet trouble with my phone.

I'm gonna go find the form to post on cuz I checked the params of the water while I'm at work :o (multitasking)

Please Help!!!!

Aubrey, I would put him in a QT of clean water and wait for instructs. What do you have in terms of meds? A close-up of the vent would be helpful.

I can't do anything until 7:30 PM because I'm at work :wall:madrant:tantrum

Frustrated! But thanks for the help! :hug

We are here! Do you have any meds on you for the treatment of fish?

:hug

I can't use tapatalk at work. :tantrum So I can't down load the video. :(

I have kanaplex and triple sulfa and can run to the pet store. I also have some unusual stuff that Cynthia gave me, BUT its a year old now :idont. I'll look in my fishy medicine chest when I get home and give you a more comprehensive list.

Do you think this is flukes or bacterial?

Helen and I also have the mysterious yellow powder. :rofl

Anyway, his activity level is really good. Is there anyway you can try to take pics of the problem spots? Don't be alarmed.

Boss Lisa had a reddish vent for a few days a few months ago, but it went away on its own without any sort of treatments. :)

I think he is quick to redden :idont I'm not sure you remember(you're a busy guy after all) but when first got him in November and he was in QT he had this same issue... Red streaking caudal fin and red vent. He was on MM at that time.

Do you want another vid or still pics cuz you know I'm the worlds worst photographer :o
