Not me Jeff. Great shots tho, once you're able to figure it out you'll be able to help others ID this problem very easily. Hope someone knows what it is and the correct action to take care of it.

Caught the cat, it was only a cut on the fin that left a flap of skin hanging. It was swollen a bit, I guess from healing and new skin growing around it.



hopefully the dolphin is just injuries too, all the other fish look fine

Don´t like the look of your moorii, Jeff. It don´t look like a injurie. I would put it in a nursery tank and raise the temperature to about 84 Fahrenheit. Put in some salt to( 0,5 dl/100 liters).

Tried salt and melafix, he's still got a couple of spots but they look better, the one in the picture is healed. Still acting fine, not sure what it was but put him back in the 180. Might try to get a pic tomorrow morning.

Melafix is a antibiotic not a parasitic . De-Los is what I use http://www.fishyfarmacy.com/products.html#De-Los

hi bulldogg7, sorry i never seen before this but what i heard about this Parasites are found worldwide, including the U.S. Of course poor sanitation increases the possibility of unwanted guests, yet soil, fruits, vegetables meats and water can be be infected.We may also pick up worms from contact with pets and other people or a barefoot walk in the garden. Worms can release as many as 200,000 eggs per day, which we may consume unknowingly. Children are easily infected by being less aware of hygiene and playing with dirt and other possible contaminated substances.

Once in the body, parasites can settle almost anywhere, causing damage to organs, and blocking and sapping nutrients from the host. The intestines offer lots of nutrients for worms, so this is a common "hang out" for them. Since parasites are most active and reproduce around the full moon, this is when some of the effects are most prominent.

A parasite is an organism that lives on or in a host and gets its food from or at the expense of its host. Parasites can cause disease in humans. Some parasitic diseases are easily treated and some are not. The burden of these diseases often rests on communities in the tropics and subtropics, but parasitic infections also affect people in developed countries.
