    Identifiy Disease

    Hi Everyone,

    My fish seems to get this over and over I cannto figure out why i am assuming it is a virus in his system. I have ordered food vitamins to increase his immune system. Can someone please confirm if this is fin rot or something else.

    Thank You

    I'd have to say it does look like fin rot. from your past problems with fish I'd have to guess you have water problems as well as possible diet concerns. what size is your tank? filtration? what are you feeding? water changes? how many fish? you should really fill out your profile on the bottom with all your tank setup.

    I have a 55gal tank with 2 puffer fish one 4 inch the other 6 inch. I use a emperor penguin, Fluval 304, Saline protien skimmer, 4 power heads. I do water changes every two weeks 25% incl gravel syphon. I feed my fish Hikari Krill but am going to start adding supermarket fresh food starting tommorow. Below is my water test

    PH 8.15
    Salinity 1.024
    Ammonia 0
    Nitrite 0
    Nitrate 0
    Calc 400
    Alk 4

    I did a water change last weekend.

    Try changing ur water ever week. Do smaller more frequent water changes see if it helps.
    Anybody can start a reef tank it takes a realy intrest in the hobby to maintain one.
