    I think he may have bumped the filter intake to my Magnum 350, because there is now a scale missing right along his back, near what would be his neck area. Should I be worried about possible infection?

    Parameters:
    Ammonia-.0ppm
    Nitrite-.0ppm
    Nitrates- >.20ppm

    Just a little worried that it could lead to a problem.

    I would just keep an eye on it and make sure you keep the water pristine.
    Bump up your water changes too twice a week or more until it is healed.

    My oscars do that to each other all the time.I always see spots where they brush up against a rock.It only takes a few days before it looks healed.

    K thast what I thogh to do, but just wanted advice. Hows 15% twice a week sound. O and by the way, water changes on big tanks SUCK, especially when one of your legs doesn't work (I have an unknown leg disorder that makes me walk like i have cerebral palsy, so carrying 5 gallon buckets is pretty hard, but its worth it)

    I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts looking inflamed or more fall off around it.

    Sure, quite a different type of fish, but my goldfish lose scales all the time from scratching against things and schuffling over food bits. Heals rather quick.
    A severe lack of trichogaster.

    Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
    Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.

    Ouch, I feel your pain NG. Isn't surgery fun? Now a hose, as in a hose attached to the sink? That does sound a lot easier, just hav to dechlore immediately

    Don't forget to set your temp and check regularly.

    yea i though about one of those. i already have a really long hose to attach to be cleaner though. So I have tat covered. just have to try it out first. The temp should be pretty easy to maintain.

    As long as your aro is healthy, it will easily grow back scales. Just watch for infection.
