Symptoms are: a open mouth that will not close very puffy. Also I now have seen to me it looks like white string or even a whisker on the side or coming out of the mouth. These fish don't have whiskers. It effects 1 fish at a time an they die shortly after. I'm at a total head confusion as to what is going on. Someone anyone know what this might possibly be????ly water change.
Sorry for the long story.
Is the only symptom a thread or "whisker" hanging out their mouth, and the mouth having a physical "stuck open"?
That pretty much says gill flukes or some sort of worm.
Both can be cured with praziquentel
Im not sure where coral thinks its TB or columnaris, maybe i have not read all the posts, but to make it easy for me to help lots of people i tend to read the OP only.....anywho, are there other symptoms maybe you havent noticed, body fungus or lesions, white stringy poo, bent spine, tail clamping, spitting out food?
