View Full Version : sick pleco

10-21-2006, 09:55 PM

I have a sick pleco he has white growths on all his fins. I researched the symptoms and it sounds like Columnaris (Flexibacter columnaris) except that everything I have read states that the fish dies within a few days and he has had this for two weeks. I have 3 Columbian sharks and 3 Siamese Sharks with him in a 20 gallon tank. They are not showing any symptoms everyone including the Pleco is eating fine. I tested my Ph and Nitrate levels and everything seems good. SO I am hoping that someone here may have an idea what he has and how to best treat him that would be great.

Thanks Sheensa
