 Hey  guys,
 Got  a  sick  fish,  or  rather  a  lot  of  sick  fish..
 Got  these  glowlight  tetras  from  a  highly  reputed  breeder  (with  the  same  water  conditions  as  mine),  after  bringing  them  to  my  place,  exactly  after  2  days...they  sort  of  developed  this  wierd  'milkyness'  all  over  their  body...as  if  their  entire  body  is  filled  with  some  whitish  stuff..
 
 They  are  eating  somewhat  ok  ok..feeding  them  live  daphnia\pellet  food..
 Tank  size=30x18x18inches
 Water  paras:  ph=7.2  to  7.4,  ammonia-nitrite=0,  nitrate=daily  water  change!  Temp=around  28-29c
 Tank  mates=around  8-10  dawn  tetras,  6  celestial  danios,  6  zebra  danios,  8-10  flame  tetras.
 
 Check  out  their  pic..in  a  bad  quality,  but  u'll  get  an  idea.

 hi  amod
                myself  had  seen  them  on  lemon  and  rummy  nose  too.  white  cloudy  appearance  esp  deep  in  the  dorsal  body.  as  time  progress  by,  that  part  of  the  body  become  rigid.  till  then  fish  appetite  is  absolutly  normal.  then  they  slowly  sink  off.  and  it  was  not  contagious  to  other  fishes.i  doubt  u  can  save  them.

 Adjust  the  water  temperature  a  little  more  than  28  degrees  treat  them  wid  RID  ALL  ANTI  ITCH  add  5  drops  for  every  25  litres  your  fish  might  have  caught  a  fungal  infection  urgent  care  is  must  do  add  rock  salt  or  aquarium  salt.  Make  sure  your  filters  are  absolutely  clean  and  working.

 Buddy,
   Two  diseases  that  come  to  my  mind,  Could  be  Ick  or  fungus  with  little  description  that  you  have  given....  pics  would  be  more  better.
 
 The  best  way  to  treat  ick  is  rock  salt  with  very  heavy  aeriation  and  a  frequent  water  change  with  a  28-30deg  temprature,  Do  not  remove  any  stock  from  the  tank  and  treat  all  the  fishes.
 
   If  its  fungus,  The  best  medicine  would  be  primafix  and  melafix   if  others  are  not  infected  move  only  the  infected  and  treat  them  in  a  hospital  tank.  Temp  is  not  of  much  importance.
 
 If  its  planted  tank  you  can  still  go  ahead  and  add  melafix  and  primafix  into  the  main  tank  also.

 Raghuji  its  definitely  not  ich,  it  looks  more  like  an  internal  cloudiness...i.e  milkyness  inside  their  body...anyway,  i'll  try  to  get  some  better  pictures  today  and  post  them.

 hey  guys  
                   thats  what  i  am  also  trying  to  say,  that  the  skin  surface  is  absolutly  fine.  cotton  wool  apperance  deep  inside  body.  this  doesnt  affect  the  fish  activities  initially.as  time  progress  this  part  of  the  body  becomes  rigid  and  the  fish  dies.  so  it  doesnt  seem  to  be  ich  or  any  fungus  disease.

 Guna  /  Amod,
   Do  you  find  any  internal  parasites  like  worms  visible  in  the  tank  or  fishes.  
 
 If  its  not  Ick  and  Fungus  then  it  might  be  internal  Flukes  or  Trematodes.  But  check  with  an  expert  that  they  are  indeed  not  fungus,  Cause  fungus  can  be  deceptive.
 
 If  these  are  flukes  or  worms,  Pottasium  permanganete  and  Gluetaraldehyde  are  2  best  solutions  to  eradicate  them.

 Hi  Amod
 
 I  think  this  is  a  problem  within  the  fish.  I  doubt  if  external  measures  would  be  useful.  
 
 Guna's  fish  apparently  had  a  small  cloudy  area  within  the  body  and  this  then  slowly  spread  throughout  the  body.  Like  he  says,  the  fish  had  good  appetite  throughout.  From  what  he  told  me  they  eventually  became  to  rigid  to  move  and  then  died.
 
 Is  that  what  appears  to  be  with  your  fish  also?  Has  it  affected  many  fish?  And  is  it  spreading  within  the  fish  and  within  the  school?
 
 Just  a  thought  to  share  with  Guna...  I  have  been  thinking  about  your  fish.  Maybe  some  fibrosing/sclerosing  condition?  What  do  you  think?  You  know  like  you  see  fibrosis  in  some  of  your  RT  patients.  Am  thinking  along  these  lines  because  fibrosing/  sclerosing  lesions  are  marked  by  rigidity  and  whitish  appearance.

 Actually  I  am  aware  to  two  on  this  thread  and  we  are  both  as  much  in  the  dark  as  everybody  else.  Time  to  call  in  the  vets.  Any  vets?

 Hi  Amod,
 
 Sorry  for  your  pets.  Well  I  too  had  the  same  problem  with  me  Black  neons,red  phantoms  and  clowns.  the  problem  started  with  white  spots  and  the  treatment  for  the  same  was  given  late,  due  to  which  I  had  lost  quite  a  few  pets.  All  I  can  say  is,  if  its  white  spots,  then  your  rather  treat  the  main  tank  and  have  the  temperature  at  a  constant  of  28  degree.
 
            Kindly  go  through  the  following  link  to  know  about  the  problem  and  treatment  for  the  same.  Good  luck.

 And  one  more  thing  ,  during  the  course  of  treatment,  dont  do  water  changes.  Do  50-70%WC  only  after  the  prescribed  course.
 
 Regards,
 surya

 Latest  updated  photos.  A  little  bit  better.

 Just  for  your  reference,  its  an  'albino'  glowlight,  so  its  body  should  be  transperant,  now  you'll  get  an  idea  of  what  the  condition  is.

 Thanks  buddy  for  your  response  but  no,  its  not  an    Ichthyophthirius  multifilis  case..plus  if  you  read  my  post,  the  temperature  is  constant  between  28-29C.

 Yes  its  a  cloudy  area  in  my  fish  too,  except  its  there  all  over  inside  their  body...NOT  outside  like  a  fungus.  Secondly,  it  did  not  spread  eventually,  it  spread  overnight!
 
 
                                                 
Quote:                
 Has  it  affected  many  fish?  And  is  it  spreading  within  the  fish  and  within  the  school?                  

 ALL  the  albino  glowlight  tetras  affected  by  the  same  condition..NO  other  fish  of  any  other  species  seems  to  be  affected  in  any  way.  
 Also,  there  seems  to  be  no  rigidity,  if  the  fish  are  approached  by  the  hand  or  touched,  they  seem  to  swim  away  normally  without  any  rigidity.
 
 But  they  are  certainly  becoming  lethargic,  gasping,  and  uninterested  in  food  since  today  morning.
 Any  diagnosis  yet?
 amod.
