could it have gill flukes?
fungus can be cleared up with salt, but I would use a medicine - if you can diagnose fungus.

I would also ensure that the water quality is perfect.

Pics would be helpfull if you want a diagnosis, otherwise it is down to you and you alone.

If I were in your position, I would contact Frank and Don H as they have good knowledge on fish and desieses, improve the water quality, and post some pics!

Hey, any luck with your fish yet?

I certanly hope it is not Gil rots because whether it is fungal or bacterial can be very difficult to treat
and will most likly lead to the death of your fish by suffocation...

We could really use some pictures thought o help us diagnose the problem. Mybe you could be more specific, but do not jump to any conclusions as it may through us off, Just describe it and its behaviors as it is.
Thnks, and good luck :smile:

hey AZ I dont think he was critising your post but rather he was critising Marco's for saying he didnt know anything, and telling him he was wasting time posting usless posts...
...Xenon will tell you for sure as he is the only one who knows what he ment...

Actually, I don't think so: see here

I guess if you need urgent help, you'll need to describe as accurate as possible what seems to be the problem. If people need an interpretor first, or need 30 minutes to decypher a post, it's not really gonna help.......

I'm not judging anyone here, but I think my comment above makes sense.... :smile:

I can reply to whatever thread I please bud. I have told you a million times that you are staff and should act accordingly. This includes proofreading your posts and attempting to gain the spelling and grammer appearence of a person your age. This is advice Ive given you privatly a million times and you choose to ignore it. So now I will do it public.

Good luck with your piraya.
