    Default State of emergency... what is this sickness


    0 Not allowed!
    so my 72 gallon bowfront is going through some type of plague that i hop you guys can help me identify it and kill it.

    my bowfront has been running fine for 7 months and i haven't had any problems until the last few days...
    I went to the fish store to buy a two corys to add to my school. I am assuming this is how the plague reached my tank because after a day one of them passed away and i assumed it was due to stress so i thought nothing of it. about 2 days later one of my ottos died, so i tested water and everything was normal.. ammonia was 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 5, and PH about 7.6. a few days later i noticed one of my dwarf rainbows have what looks like a rash with missing scales on one side.. he was also hiding and didn't eat. so after that night i came home and noticed not only was he dead, but a cory and another rainbow... also see another rainbow having that same rash but he isnt hiding and wants to eat. Ill post a pic of him as well as the rainbow that i noticed before that has already passed so you guys can see the rash. what do you guys think this is and what meds can i get to treat the tank. my tank has snails and shrimp.

    I don't know anything about rainbows, but is it possible they have reached maturity and what you are seeing is related to dominance struggles? If I see missing scales on a cichlid that is hiding in a corner he is most likely stressed from being bullied.

    It really looks bacterial. I like to use Terramycin, but minocycline or Kanamycin would work well in a hospital tank or via feed.
