Powder Blue Tang - Strange growth on nose

Hi,

My powder blue tang has developed a strange growth on his nose.

He seems fine in himself and is feeding well.

Can someone please help.

Looks like he ran into some rock or the yellow tang got him. Keep an eye out for him in case of infection

OK cool. I guess that that is the best I could have hoped for.

Would you recommend getting some garlic extract as I have heard that this can aid healing.

Never used it before but I guess it cant hurt. I just let mine heal on their own. As long as they are eating. I believe the garlic is to get them to eat and if there is no problem eating you prpbably dont need it but that is IMO

Garlic and Selcon are both great for helping the fish bolster their immune system to help them get through ailments. Great idea for temporary as well as weekly maintenance when feeding. I hope that helps.

Pristine water conditions will also aid in allowing him to heal easier. Keeping the DOC to a minimum will help to prevent a bacterial infection from taking hold while he heals. I'd do a couple of water changes to be proactive.

Good luck.
