    Default Upside Down Catfish Sick? Please help!


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello everyone,

    I have 3 upside down catfish in a 125 gallon tank with some guppies, Baka sharks, and iridescent sharks. One of the catfish has appeared to get smaller and I can see its bones where the fins were. He is still eating quite aggressively and swims as usual but I'm concerned he has some sort of infection? My other guess was that the other catfish were attacking him as he is the smallest of the three...any ideas? I'll try and add some pictures if I can get him to come out. Thanks in advance!

    Possibly isolate him and feed him so that he can gain weight?

    How long have these symptoms been present?

    Do you know your water parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate)?
    What is your maintenance schedule like.

    I would suspect fin rot due to sub-optimal water quality, possibly triggered by aggression stress or injury.
