yes, i already move it to other place in the tank where he doesn't go to much, thanks for the recommendationsThey make heater guards, or you can move the heater to a location he doesnt hang out...
Also, you can prob turn the temp down to around 78 or 75.
hi, first of all i never present my self, i'm from Argentina and i have this pygocentrus one weeks ago, it still adapting to the tank and its mostly steady in one place and doesn't want to eat, but from what a read on the forum that's normal when they are new in the tanks. However, for the burn treatment the local aquarium recommend me to use Methylene blue because it antiseptic properties and checking it doesn't grow fungi. It seems that the injured its getting better i will report next week how it goes. I'll leave a picture below so everybody can see how is he, his name is "YACO".Ouch! Sorry that happened to your piranha, Alfred.
Let us know how the treatment goes.
Hey man, good to meet ya.
Looks like he'll be fine.
