Can anyone tell me whats wrong with my dwarf gourami

Need some help or advice quickly.

Can anyone tell me whats wrong with my dwarf gourami

Postby sandraturpin361 » Thu Dec 01, 2011 4:00 pm

Hi there

Could you please have a look at the short video clip of my dwarf gourami and if possible give me some idea of what is wrong with him. He is acting normally and doesn't appear to be unwell in anyway. As you can see there are a couple of holes in his fins. He isn't bothered by any of the other fish, in fact he is the one that likes to chase the bolivian rams. I have been reading up on white spot but not sure if it fits the description.

Thanks for looking.

I'm certainly no expert, Sandra, but it looks more like fin rot to me than whitespot (which is small white spots, not holes).
Are any of the other fish showing eroded areas, or patches of white looking tissue on their fins?

I couldn't see clearly from the video, is the area around the hole white, or does the tissue look healthy.
Also, what are your water stats, as high nitrite can provoke fin rot. We had some in our tank and generous water changes got things back on track without the need to medicate.

As I said, I am no expert, but if you supply this info it might help the folk on the forum help you quickly.

Thanks for your reply. I don't see any evidence of eroded areas on any of the other fish but will keep a closer eye on them. I am sure there was a touch of white where the holes are and there is a white bit on it's tail. We have been testing the water. Nitrites and ammonia are fine but nitrates have been a bit higher than they should be so over the last two nights we have done a 30% water change and the nitrates have dropped to maybe a bit over 20ppm. Over the last couple of weeks we have treated the water with Esha 2000 twice due to a sterbai seeming to lose its balance so hopefully that might have helped.

Looks like a bit of fin rot to me as well, it should clear if the water quality is kept high.

Will the holes in the fin grow back again or will he always have the holes?

One of our black wedge tetras had a shortened raggedy tail. It grew back perfectly once the water stats were maintained well.
