KRIBENSIS SICK

Recommended Posts

My Krib was bitten by another fish about 11 days ago, I took him out of the tank and treated him with melafix. He seemed to recover and the wound healed, but now he just lays next to the glass in a vertical position and it appears that his scales are sticking out. Can someone help me he is a beautiful fish and I hate to lose him. Thanks.

CPD2137,

I have used PimaFix and MelaFix for quite some time and have had outstanding results. About a month ago I treated a Rusty and a Cobalt Blue, both of which had been fin-nipped pretty badly. After a ten day treatment in my hospital tank with water changes every 3 days, I returned both fish to their respective tanks. The Cobalt Blue was fine and went about his usual mbuna business. But the Rusty acted sluggish and layed around like your Krib. He's fine now. I'm not sure why, but it seems like MelaFix or PimaFix may affect some Cichlids differently than others.
