  1. Default gold ram with fungal infection


    0 Not allowed!
    i have two golden rams, a male and a female.
    the male ram has a white bump on his head between his eyes.
    I looked it up on google and found another person with the same issue. it turns out that it is a fungal infection.
    The problem is that i have had quite a lot of fungal infections with my tank and i would like to treat the whole tank.
    Does anyone know of a fungal treatment that doesnt harm fish without fungus.
    Or maybe of a natural treatment

    Never had to treat fish for fungus but never use 'natural' treatments - they do not work. That is not to say off-self meds work well but they are tested. Consider finding some in the local LFS and get info on what they suggest and then post that here for comments.

    From my experience fungus is often a sign of good water quality - might consider better vacuuming and larger water changes.

    really, fungus often means good water quality? that explains it cause my water quality is tip top.

    I am going to the aquarium shop later on today.

    Thanks for your help, will keep you updated

    I'm sure he actually meant to say poor water quality, unfortunately.

    I'm going to disagree with Cermet on all-naturals not working -- I found Pimafix extrememly effective against a fungal infection on a fish.

    Yes - a miss type; fungus more often than not is the result of over feeding and this is what causes poor water quality.

    I have little doubt that natural meds are not very useful and any cure is pretty much the fish healing itself when the owner improves the water quality. I'd strongely suggest using a standard fungus med and feed less and vacuum more.
