Injured wen

Recommended Posts

20171003_111337.thumb.jpg.578c9a69870ba8fc5c37a37b1a92fef1.jpgHi all.  The intake screen fell off my canister filter and one of my small Ornadas got pulled up against It.  He wasn't there long, I noticed or right away.  But now he has a tiny red wound on the top of his wen.  He is active and eating and swimming normally. This happened about 24 hours ago.

  Should I put anything in the tank to prevent infection? Raise the temp? Lower the temp? Salt?  Thanks

If it was my fish I would just add .1% salt to the tank. Keep an eye on it :)

What they said :)  it happens sometimes, but freshwater and a little salt is by far the best treatment unless the wound shows signs of infection already.  That one doesn’t, thankfully!
