How to identify my fishes disease?

Post by Brett Whiteley » Wed Feb 26, 2020 9:27 am

Hi guys, I am a newbie in this forum and having a problem.
I've got 15 clowns ranging from small to 20cm+, 4 Pakistani loach and 40 Tiger Barbs in a 500 liter tank.
Few months ago one of the clowns lost some scales, shortly after it another clown lost some scales too.
It appeared that the scales are growing back but than one of them lost more scales and looked bruised.
Can everyone help me identify my fishes disease?

According to your information, it seems that your fish suffering from bacterial infection.The most effective way to avoid it is to use Epsom salt. But, you must be very careful since Epsom salt is powerful than regular salt. Add 1/8 teaspoons to around 22-25 liters.
