    New Emperor Tetras;One Is Infected

    Hey*all!

    *

    I got a group*of Emperor Tetras in yesterday. Today one has developed this... spot, on its body. It is breathing rapidly but is also nibbling on stuff so that tells me its appetite isn't gone.

    *

    I'm at a loss for what it*could be. The fish are in quarantine in a very established tank kept running for quarantine and hospital. I've dosed the tank with Ich X, EM Erythromycin, and General Cure. Temp is 78 degrees.

    *

    Any advice?

    To me it looks like fungus in the gel coat. Probably got nipped or something. Just incase I would run it through my usual trio and then if it doesnt go away treat it with fungus cure. I use API E.M, General cure, and ichx on everything when I get them. Under dose ICHx slightly the first day by 10%, I dose the final 10% the next morning. Lots of oxygen in the water.

    Thank you! That's exactly what I'm using. I'll do a small WC tomorrow and add another half dose of ICH X.

    Quick update: fish seems to have made a full recovery. Will keep in quarantine to make sure.

    Thanks for the response!
