    What medication is the question though. Everyone is giving different thoughts on what I should use. If I just knew I wouldn't be wasting time

    hi bianca;
    you only have protozin at the moment ,i would do as hollowman have advised ,i would get some cotton tips ,deep in protozin, get the fish in the net and while he is still in the net apply the protozin by rubbing the cotton tip on the sore ,count to 30 and then put him back in the tank , i would do that twice a day for a week and see if he improves . as it was mentioned before be careful not get the medicine in to the gills or eyes. good luck

    Agree with Hollowman. i apply this method and it works every time.

    if i were you, i will do lots of water change because open wound like this is very susceptible to bacteria infections.

    water change of 2 or 3 days once with 20% is too little imho. if you could, please do 50% daily or at least 50% every other day. this will definitely helps a lot.

    i would apply metronidazole with 1/4 teaspoon per 20 gallon everyday for at least a week. water change before each dosing. Since you are using protozin, i guess u should stick with it but you need to up your game on water change

    I am very happy to say my fish is on the mend. So after using lots of different meds and asking a lot of different shops what I should do and what I should use a guy in springvale sold me a powder med which I will upload a pic of and told me what a few people on here having told me to do . take the fish out and put the powder on the sore. I decided to move him to a qt tank because he was getting stressed when I was trying to net him out. Use the med in the water as well as on the fish. Was doing wc everyday and putting med on him twice a day . I also decided to mix together the other 2 med I got adviced to use in a cup and was putting that on him too. He stopped eating and it was over a week that he didn't eat for and I was sure he wouldn't make it because he was eating. Once he settled into the qt tank and the sore started getting better he started eating again which I was over the moon about. Was doing all this for over a week and this morning put him back in the main tank. He seems very happy to be back and eat straight away.

    That's a good result. Well done. Just keep up the water changes, clean water is the best medicine.
    Why me ?
