Sorry, The Angel fish pic was the one I was checking on and it didn't show up!!!
I have something which sounds similar to /like Columnaris, but it hasn't killed much stock, only a few of the fish which probably brought it with them.
The first round I had a pH crash, (that is when I lost the 3rd angels buddy angel #4) after I got that fixed, everything seemed great.
Then I added some Otos and they have oval /round spots on them, treated with Marycyn - two for gram negative bacteria, and it didn't do anything That I can tell.
Now I am trying to see what will work for not killing inverts, prefer not kill all my BB from my FX-5
. Best meds seem to be Sulfa Combo med
or Kanamycin. Still trying to verify effect on inverts and BB. I should call the med company now!
All fish are active and eating, even the ones with the patches, and things seem fine otherwise.
This is in my 72G. I need to get them better, as I have fish to move around because I am getting rid of two tanks. Two healthy ones btw. No problems in any other tanks and no moving fish around. Anything that has gone into the 72G has stayed in there. I use separate buckets and nets.
