anyone seen this before? 3 red dots on the lower jaw and and red mark up the gill plate, then a red area around the start of the lateral line

i've never seen this before but recently changed their diet to a high protien

(50%) food instead of a medium protien (35%) food, thats all i can think of but if anyone has a better suggestion please let me know

cheers, joel.

yes looks to be HLLE. sorry missed the thread previously. water changes are thye best course of action as are improved diet. do you feed any frozen foods? ie cichlid dinner or bloodworms? the addition of both garlic and paprika (may sound silly) will aid in getting the flagelletes less interested in the host fish. metronidazole will kill them off and giving it a bath in potassium permanganate once a week will also help.

all that aside the water changes will help and it will slowly repair the damage done though some scarring may remain HTH ;)
