    Looks like bacterial infection growing around the gills. Not good at all. Did he get a cut or scape on his gills?

    I'm not sure really.... I used to have a thing that was sharp and I removed it a few weeks ago.... If it was that would it just be showing up now?

    What was it? If he got cut by the sharp thing, then yes. It could take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks before the bacterial infection really hits. His immune system must be weak.

    It was this. The inside edges were all sharp I figured out, so I removed it[​IMG]

    I do not. I've never need any and have had tanks for 20 years lol so I'm not even sure what I would need.
