Hi,

I have a couple of sick fish. Can you tell me what this is and the best way to treat it? The first photo the electric yellow seems to stay in this position most of the time.

Thanks Richard

Usually red at the base of fins can be a parasite or bacterial infection. Try adding salt @ 2-4g/L with your water changes.

Can a black ghost knife fish handle salt? Theres a 20cm one in the tank. I presume thats grams to litre.

Melafix and pimafix don't help with any parasites.

Flashing and rubbing on rocks isn't just the fish. A shaking display between 2 males is normal but not rubbing themselves on things, this indicates an irritation around where they're rubbing, if they keep rubbing they can get a secondary bacterial infection.
