I have a group of 4 Rbs all around 2.5". They are all in a 35g drum for now while I arrange for a tank for them.
I know that that a drum isn't the best of places to grow out piranha but I am getting a 4*2*2 soon.

One of them got badly nipped a two days ago and although I ve seperated him into a hospital tank, he seems to have developed a fungus since last night.

He's in bad shape but could pull through. I have isolated him and treated him with salt and increased temp. Should I use some pimafix as well?

If you are positive it is body fungus then you can treat with Mardel Maroxy.

Thanks for the help, guys. Unfortunately the little guy didn't make it through the night. It definitely looks like a case of fungus to me. Problem with a drum is that I couldn't observe anything until its pretty much too late. They are going to have to get a tank pretty soon.
