Hey, so I just got my first fish since I was like 6 last Tuesday. I purchased 3 angels and 1 ďGloSharkĒ (colored albino rainbow shark). I noticed last night that my rainbow has white lumps on both sides of her dorsal fin and she is flashing all over the tank. She is also hiding and not eating very much but Iím not sure if she is still acclimating to the tank. I figured it was ich and changed the water, gravel vacced, and dosed aquarium salt and malachite green to the tank. However I fear I may have jumped the gun because now that I looked up pictures of ich it appears to look different. It looks like a fungal infection maybe? Also now that Iím lookin closely I noticed two of my angels have red in their eyes. Iím not sure whatís going on. Pictures and tank specs below.
I have a 55 gal
with a Fluval / Aquaclear 70 HOB
and an Aqueon 30 HOB
running in the tank. I let my tank fishless cycle for a month using pure ammonia and SeaChem Stability. My water is reading 0 for ammo, nitrites and nitrates with my API master test kit. The water is at about 78 degrees F. I did a 25% water change two days ago and another one today before dosing. Also maybe worth noting: Iíve had a bit of a brown algae problem Iíve been working to rid, although my shark likes to eat it.
