      Infected Scale?

      I happen to notice one of my Doitsu Sanke had a pinkish tint to one of the scales on itís side. I netted him up and examined him. It looked to be an infected scale so I cleaned it with hydrogen peroxide then rubbed some tricide-neo around and under the scale, should I continue to do this daily? Also should I remove the scale or wait an see what happens to it?

      Single treatment should be all that is needed. If it doesn't clear within a couple of weeks, then you might pull the scale and repeat the Tricide Neo.

      Here’s an update of the Fish, I’m wondering if the scale is dying and it’s time to pull it it?

      I sould go ahead and pull the scale and treat the root area with peroxide or iodine. It doesn't appear to be getting any better.
