Hard to say. It’s a possibility. Those openings are big for parasites and the fish still survived. Usually they need levamisole or something else. Prazipro wont treat those mentioned. Anyway....Keep the water clean. Try methylene blue dip or dab the areas with a qtip soaked with MB. It’ll keep the area clean and treat any localized superficial infection. Hope it clears up. Best of luck.was talking with some employees at my LFS and happened to recall that I Prazipro'ed the tank about a week ago, their theory is that the skin lesions were possibly caused by parasites exiting the body. I know i have seen this with my loaches and anchor worms after anti parasitic treatments. Think there's any stock to this theory? The bristlenose in question is eating fine and behavior looks normal, but the wounds are still open and haven't started to heal over yet. i have him quarantined and doing partial daily W/C.
Would watch the other fish. Gotta quarantine. Best way to prevent.Sadly my bristlenose didn't make it, spread to his right pectoral fin and ate away all the flesh from it. Does that mean that i have a larger issue in my closed loop system, because now im pretty sure it was a flesh eating bacteria of some sort. Should i be worried about my other fish potentially becoming ill due to this pathogen? Whats the best way to rectify the problem, my fish are my babies and I'd hate to lose anyone else?
