So the male checkerboard cichlid I bought has this weird tail fungus. It wasd there when i bought hiim , I just didnt reaize because allergies were making my eyes water.

Anyway its ainly on his tail fin, a bit has spread just above that. Otherwise he is very healthy, eating and exploring and searching for food. Im terating with mela + pima fix.

What do you think I should do?

When we bought our sparkling gourami, the little guy had something like that..
We treated it with pimafix... After one week it was gone...
So perhaps you can try it...

Best of luck with your little buddy.

I hope your little guy gets through it ok. I was just looking into these checkerboards then saw this post. They are an amazing looking fish when they reach adult!

keep us posted Ed. Hopefully some meds and a hospital tank will save him.
