Hi all,

What could be this problem below? The scales are not like the others. Seems like a disease or something?

ok, firstly Bristlenose don't have scales...they are scaleless fish Smile

but yes, something is def amiss there. Looks like an open wound behind the eye there, most likely a bacterial infection. I would get her into a hospital tank if you have one, if not no big deal, then treat with a broard scale anti-biotic like multi-cure (AT HALF DOSE, full dose will kill her).

see how that goes Smile

If your unable to obtain antibiotics (some countries it needs to be perscibed by a vet), so if you have eSHa 2000 to hand I'd start a course ASAP.

I would quarantine her if it is possible for you...always safer that way..It does look like a secondary infection after an injury..Best of luck with her..
