So i thought i had beaten a strange disease a long time ago. Well, in fact, i did. I had to move to an apartment, then our small house now, so i got rid of most of my fish supplies. But, being the kind hearted person i am, I kept the guppy fry after they seemed o.k
. Now, 6 months later, those fry are mostly grown up, but once again, i am having problems. There is no bloat this time, which is good. Can cure the bloat thing. Now they just have the emanciapated bellies again. Im kicking myself. I should have just destroyed the 50 or so fry and completely gotten rid of everything. My guppies are in a bare bottom ten gallon with a cycled spoonge filter and a cheap preset heater that stays around 77ish.
At this stage in my hobby, i am just experimenting with diffrent things and trying to learn new things, especially (or almost exclusively) about diseases, because ever since i got out of the "noob" phase years ago, ive had nothing but rotten luck.
Their cadual tails are clamped and they are emanciapted "skinny" in the belly with a mortality here and there. Not all are affected but only one here and there. Ive thrown every med at them thinking its a parasite like HOITH or fulkes. Ive used:
Rid ick = Formalin +MG
Acriflavine + MG
Metronidazole in food and in water, pure powder
Even a dewormer before when they were bloated
Now im starting to agree with junebug that it is in fact fish TB. Just confused because i dont see any open wounds, ever. And a few days ago i even stuck my hand in the water with cuts on my finger, because i didnt think until i observed them today that it was fish TB. But now.....i mean if it was a parsite, the darn thing would be dead by now! Any kind of parsite!
I help alot of people here to the best of my ability, please someone help me!
They no longer have stringy feces. Have not since i used the acriflavin/MG
a long time ago.
That leads me to believe that i actually had 2 seperate diseases going on awhile back. One, a parasite, and one, fish TB. Now they are just emanciapted and clamped, but otherwise eating and acting fine.
