Wound on kok; Should I be worried about this wound?
Topic Started: May 24 2018, 09:22 AM (43 Views)
My flowerhorn has a wound on his head and I'm not sure what it is from. He is eating normal and his poop is normal color. There is another smaller one on the other side, a little bit of white fuzz around the wound. I am worried it is Hex, but want some more advice and input. He is about 4.5" long. Just purchased him 3 weeks ago. He is in a 92 gallon corner tank with a big piece of driftwood as his centerpiece. 300 watt heater, fluval 406, and a sponge filter. Any advise would be awesome. Thanks much.

Ouch...well fh heals quick..the got good immune system..as long as it doesn't get infected then it should be fine...just keep the water clean and temp stable. Also are there any other fish in the tank? Or may it be that it got spooked and hit its head on the driftwood? For sometime that happens..also usually with fh we don't put driftwood or any sharp object cu a these fish sometimes dart left and right, specially when they see the owner thinking it's feeding time...keep us posted
SAD??? sad is seeing that wrinkled face in the mirror of a NOBODY and knowing that life is given by Borrowed Time,
And to the Truth is, Being alive and not knowing how to LIVE...
Now that is sad!!!


So Therefore... My Dream is My Reality and My Reality is My Dream, And If I am in MY Reality, Then I could do So as I pleases AS in My DREAM!!!

It is healing up quick and almost better already. There is a bichir with him that I was told is okay with a flowerhorn. The bichir is only about 3". I will monitor the driftwood and make sure it isn't in the way or an issue. Just like the way it looks rather then having an empty tank. Does anyone do aquarium salt to help wounds or in there food to help digestion?
