 My  flowerhorn  which  is  around  7  inches  long  since  last  week  is  not  taking  food.  Complete  colour  has  become  dark  and  is  most  of  the  time  resting  at  the  bottom  of  the  tank.  Swimming  unusually  sideways  and  sometimes  upside  down,  sometimes  floating  vertically  facing  the  bottom  of  the  tank.  I  find  this  behaviour  very  unusual.  I  did  a  water  change  3  days  back.  But  no  results.  Please  advise.

 think  we  have  some  flower  horn  plague  going  on  here...if  it  helps  i  think  the  dry  shrimp  that  i  was  feeding  my  flower  horn  was  tha  cause...the  swelling  could  be  because  of  body  fluids  being  accumulated  or  blockage  in  the  digestive  track.
 Sorry  guys  i  could  not  save  mine  hope  you  guys  can  do  something.

 One  more  thing  I  noticed  in  the  flower  horn  tank  is  on  the  glass,  I  could  see  tiny  white  spherical  small  egglike  things  sticking.  I  can  find  somewhere  around  a  100  or  so  sticking  structures.  Has  anyone  noticed  similar  things  in  your  tank?

 Dear  all,
 
 I  have  a  flower  horn(pink)  in  a  4ft  imported  tank  filled  with  golden  sand  .I  found  for  the  first  time  there  are  some  scars  or  to  be  very  clear  its  like  some  flesh  removed  under  its  mouth  around  the  gills.  and  not  bleeding.
 
 I  thought  it  is  b'cos  the  fish  always  hits  the  ground  and  the  sand  removes  some  flesh.Is  that  the  same  or  its  an  infection.
 
 I  found  that  the  scar  is  developing.If  it  is  a  disease,  what  is  the  cure  ?
 
 I  am  expecting  some  reply  from  flower  horn  experts.
 
 
 Regards
 Ramana

 Ramana,
 Welcome  to  IAH!
 Sorry  to  disappoint  you  but,  we  unfortunately  don't  have  any  FH  experts  here  on  the  panel.  However,  we  are  all  students  here  still  studying  in  the  school  of  life!  When  we  brand  our  selves  as  experts  we  unfortunately  close  doors  to  new  updates  because  an  expert  knows  'Everything'  -  we  all  are  still  learning  and  have  a  lot  to  learn!   Smile  
 IMO  the  sand  that  you  have  used  for  the  tank  -  is  it  corse  enough  to  cause  injury  to  the  fish?  Just  take  a  handful  of  the  sand  and  feel  it  in  your  hand  if  it  feels  sharp  or  corse  dispose  it  and  think  of  some  other  smoother  substrate  or  as  most  FH  keepers  do  keep  it  in  a  BB  (bare  bottom)  tank.
 Secondly,  add  a  mild  anti-bacterial  treatment  to  the  tank  so  that  the  fish  does  not  develop  any  infection  from  the  injury.
 HTH!

 Even  i  have  noticed  those  things,  and  at  my  place,  they  even  crawl!!
 The  cause  is  mostly  a  typical  food  favoured  by  the  critters,  in  my  case,  azoo  arowana  sticks.  Any  day  i  give  my  fish  that  thing  to  eat,  the  second  day  there  are  hundreds  of  those  crawling  menaces  on  the  glass!!
 Regards,
 amod.

 Hey  the  first  and  foremost  therapy  on  flowerhorns  i  used  to  do  was  quaratining  and  salt  water.  
 
 I  have  learnt  that  FHs  are  very  hardy  fishes  and  the  best  thing  is  they  show  signs  of  distress  well  in  advance.  It  is  for  us  to  analyse  them  step  by  step.
 
 I  have  two  good  fhs  die  because  i  was  late  to  react.  I  have  saved  some  fhs  with  basic  treatment  of  qt,salt  and  warmth  (  heater).  Fhs  normally  are  stressed  during  winter  and  cold  water.  Raising  temp  always  help.  I  have  cured  ich  on  fhs  just  by  raising  temp.
 
 one  thing  with  fhs  or  any  other  fishes  for  that  matter  -  observe.
