TB, Columnaris, or something else?


Just a bit of background. In my Australian native tank I've been losing a couple of fish a months. I always quarantine and use a hand full of medications during quarantine to try and kill any parasites and bacterial infections before adding new fish to my main tanks.

I thought I had Columnaris a couple of months back so treated the whole tank with furan 2 but fish are still dying but without the tell tale "saddle" on them.

Here are some pictures of the fish in question

If someone take a look and let me know what you think. There are 3 different fish in the photos, some are of the neon rainbow that looks bloated, has red makes around its stomach, missing scales on the stomach and today what looks like a white lump forming on one side, the next is of a boesemani that has gone completely white, and the last is of a olive perchlet that has a white lump on its mouth.

The white boesemani might just be totally stressed due to being the only female with 3 male boesemani.

Sorry forgot to mention that I'm currently treating the tank with kanaplex and feeding medicated fish food with kanaplex and metro.

Thanks for any help
