PostSubject: Another problem   Sun Sep 14, 2008 8:51 am

banghead This morning I got up for work and one of my Rosie Barbs Had a strange growth in the area of it's anal fins it was clear and could have been an ulcer. I've never seen this on any of my fish before, When I got home tonight it was dead. I've tried to find out what causes it but I have no idea what it could be as their were no other symptoms, could it be related to the ich that my Silver Shark had?
I took a photo of it in the hope that it might give everyone a better idea of what it was and what I can do to prevent other fish becoming infected.
Unfortunatley I don't think I can put any treatment in my tank until Tuesday as I treated with interpet anti white spot last Tuesday for my Silver Shark.

At present their are no visible signs of anything being wrong with any other fish, but I thought that last night to.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear about that. Having lost several fish myself lately, I completely empathize. Crying or Very sad

My original Betta developed something similar on its throat but it lasted for a good while before eventually succumbing. The fact that this appeared overnight and was instantly fatal is a bit bizarre but it could've been something internal that just ruptured outwards. Wink

Thanks Mary.
If it was an internel infection hopefully it's not contagious. Yet another good reason to get a Q tank.

Looks like a fungal infection.

Octozin is usually a good choice for things like this.

The joys of fish keeping.

It didn'n look like a fungus. It was clear although it doesn't look clear in the photo. I've treated the tank for an internal infection as another rosie barb died a couple of days later with no visible signs of anything being wrong other than it was gasping and struggling to swim properly for a couple of days then died. Couldn't treat it before yesterday as I had to treat my tank for ich last week.
Just hope i've got it right. Their's no more sign of the ich so hopefully that's sorted.

john just out of interest, what are your water stats and temp? Gasping could be due to oxygen depletion and I know you will have had the temp up while you have treated for ich. Did you add an air bubble during that time?

I know it wouldnt have caused the cyst in the photo, but it might be a cause for a fish gasping etc.
