What is in Spooky's nostril?

Recommended Posts

Api freshwater liquid

Amonia 0 ppm

Nitrite 0 ppm

Nitrate 0 ppm

Ph 7.6

Last water change at 50% was Tuesday

60 gallon tank

2 aquaclear 70 filters

7 fish (tails included in measurments)

6 inch

5 inch

4.5 inch

3.75 inch

3 inch

2.75 inch

2.5 inch

I have an led light which makes green algae possible. I let it grow hoping my goldies would graze on it. It might sound crazy, but I think there is algae growing out of the nostril on one of my fish. It is fine in every other way. Eats, poops, and swims normally. Is there anything I can do? Can I get rid of it safely? Thank you for any and all help.

I tried taking it out and I couldn't. Kind of hard trying to hold the fish, be careful not to hurt it and take whatever it is out.

Do you have anyone who could hold him while you use tweezers to get it out? Not sure. Just a suggestions until a mid cones to help.

I am not sure you want to try and take it out until you know what it is.

How long has it been in there? My ranchu often ends up with black sand in her nostrils but clears it herself.

I saw a dark spot for mayne a week and then I saw the green for a few days. Is there a way to kill green algae without hurting my plants and fish?

It's a little hard to tell from the picture.  You don't have black sand, do you?

 

Just a note to contemplate:  7 Goldfish in a 60 gallon is very overstocked and is likely to lead to health issues.
