Jasonanatal What kind of fungus does this lion have? What signs of fungus is the lion showing?
Jasonanatal - Is this type of outbreak normal?
Lions are pretty hardy fish but when they are stressed they can show many different symptoms. A lion can stress from tank size, tank mates or even water quality.
Having this lion in a smaller tank with a puffer, this alone would be enough to stress this fish, they are not aggressive fish, they hang out on the rocks & swim at their own leisure.
Diet plays a very important part in the health of a lion, what are you feeding?
Freshwater foods should never be fed to a lion unless they are ghost shrimp gut loaded with a nutritional flake food or cyclopezee, They need a variety of meaty foods such as Krill, silversides, Raw shrimp, mysis, Octo, squid & so on. Foods should also be soaked in vitamins 2-3 times per week.
