    Default Help determining what's up with my fish

    Hi everyone,
    I was curious if anyone can tell me what is wrong with my fishes face? And if so any suggestions on how to help it?

    He is a rainbow fish and it looks like the too of his mouth is peeling away. It has some raw bloody looking patches mixed with peeling skin (almost like a collection of old fuzzy food is stuck to his nose).

    Hey there, that sounds like a fungal or bacterial issue that may have taken advantage of an injury. What tank size do you have? How are your filtration and heating?
    What other tankmates does your rainbowfish have? do you know what your water parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate) are? This information would help us determine what's going on. In the meanwhile, the best thing you can do is change at least 50% of the water daily to ensure it is as clean as possible.
