come home tonight and noticed this on my loach what is it and will lots of W/c cure it?
I have a tank with two discus in it along with tetra so I can't add meds to the tank as it will effect the discus.

yep I think he's ripped off a small dorsal fin not main one whats the options? a harsh way flush him away or think he will get better without infecting the tank with his open wounds

he likes bloody getting Into tight spots like between heater and bog wood or glass and bogwood, I've had himfor two years never a cut or nothing and it's all stayed the same inside the tank :s what about the big eye will that go down do you think with just more clean W/C

I would probably just add some Melafix - it's fine with Discus. Should aid healing.

My brother had one of the black with white spot talking catfish (agamexis pectinifrons), it sat on a heater and burnt a huge hole in its side but my brother just tipped a bit of salt into the wound and it healed up and lived for about 20 years.
