    Is this fungus? I have dealt with fungus before but have never had it this severe. I've had this fish for about 5 days and I've been treating him with meds for about 4 with melafix, putting in salt and turning the heat up. Any ideas what to do? Does it go away

    Removing net from catfish spines?

    So today my platinum senegal bichir went nuts and attacked my platysilurus mucosus, taking his barbels off and shredding his tail.

    Gulper Catfish Slime Coat Coming Off

    I have recently acquired a gulper catfish, it is still acclimating to the new environment but the slime coat is coming off on the fins and in front of the head. Is this normal, should I do more water changes or just leave it as is for now? Thank you

    Fish louse?

    I think my gulper has a louse (cue goosebumps and skin crawl). Would that affect his appetite? How would I remove it? I've had him a week today. He's wild caught but I imported him from a Cichlaholics. Pics aren't great. Not much practice taking photos of moving objects through glass.
