    Hi.

    I have an African cichlid in quarantine that has a weird lesion on his head. I’ve been treating him with an antibiotic, some aquarium salt, and doing 50% water changes a day.

    there is no ammonia, nitrite, or nitrates in the take because of this.

    the last two days this fish refused to eat and now it’s sitting at the bottom of the tank and kind of looks like it’s hiccuping. Please help! Any advice would be appreciated.

    Once I noticed the fish wouldn’t swim I did another 30% water change
