white growth on side of common
« on: January 02, 2015, 01:12:19 PM »

About 8 months ago I acquired  2 commons from local pet shop. They were each approx 1.5 inch..One has thrived and is now approx 3inches. Very lively ..eats well ..the other has barely grown.  About half inch.  He has developed a white growth growth on his side..About 1/8 inch He swims normally ..but periodically he  swims head down .when not feeding. He appears to feed ok. I HAVE A LARGEISH TANK. Approx 3ft.x18insx14ins. The other fish in the tank are 3 Comets  1 with 5inch body and 3inch fancy tail  another with 5inch body with normal fork tail..the other has not grown as much..about 3inch with 3inch fancy tail . These three were obtained 5 years ago as little 1.5 fish. They share the tank with 2 sucking coaches. Who keep the tank clean. Water is 50per cent changed every 2/3 weeks . They are FED on tropical fish flakes alternating with pellets. There is a large filter with four type filter blocks which are changed regularly. Two lights on for about 4hrs a day.  They all seem happy lads apart from the one I have described.HELP PLEASE Sad
