    My comet has slowly had her gills either eaten or decaying away her right gill is much worse than her left gill but both are affected she is in a 200 Lt tank with 4 Bristlenose Pleco's and on a couple of BN pleco's their tails have split I'm not sure if its due to them chasing one another as 2 are male and 2 are female and have been chasing one another quite vigorously but I'm in the process of resealing another 4 foot tank to put my comet in so I can have the pleco's by them selves in their own tank. I've tested the aquarium water Ammonia=0 PH=6.2 Temp=28C/82.4F I do 25% water changes once a week and use Aqua Master Water Ager Chlorine neutraliser to the added water.
    Please help my comet her appetite has not changed and is eating like usual the only thing I've noticed is the occasional yawn.

    What is the nitrite and nitrate readings? 25% water change per week doesn't seem enough for 4 plecs and a comet and the water temp is very high. Think I would do a 50 - 75% water change right away and let the temp drop to at least 76.

    Agreed, 25% water changed weekly are probably far too little to prevent nitrate accumulation with such heavy stock and nitrates could cause fin and other membrane erosion. Asides from that, you might also want to look into gill/body flukes and hexamita.
