I have a sailfin plecostomus that has been with me for only a year but has got to be part of the family - no suprise. Last week I noticed it had a small tear in the skin just above the left pectoral fin this has since grown to be an area of missing skin - no apparent tank problems - no infections in any of the other inhabitants and no parasites. The fish seems to be okay in itself it is not sulking more than usual and not acting dopy or agitated. I have treated the tank with a general anti fungus but there semms to be no healing and in fact a small sore / skin loss area has appeared on the same side just above the pelvic fin ! I have checked out the tank decor to ensure no rough edges and it seems okay. Any suggestions to treatment please.
