my shark has a white nose, it looks like its spreading, its not fluffy like a fungus. it just looks like his scales are changing colour from silver to white?
He seems fine otherwise
Could there be something wrong with him?
any ideas?
I though about getting velvet tonic, and seeing if that made any differences?
I have never had any of my fish get ill before, so I do not know what to look for. I have got fungus and rot control which I bought when one of mu fish was ill when I bought it (missing gill) but I decided to get rid of it as I was told it would be prone to infection. Should i try some of the fin rot a and fungus?,I don't really want to pump my tank full of chemicals, at the same time I dont want any fish to get ill.
I have clowns also, and I have read that they can be very sensitive to chemicals - is this true?
help needed soon!
