Plec - white eyes and white patch on skin #1
Hi all, I have a community tank with an old plec (Mr Big), he's probably 15yo plus (I've had him for 12 years)
Last couple of days, his eyes have clouded over, like cataracts, and he has a couple of patches of exposed flesh on him (scales have gone and white flesh exposed). My red tailed black shark has nibbled at it too.
Any ideas why his eyes have clouded over and his flesh exposed?
I'm trying to upload a photo but it isn't accepting it!
Cheers, Andrew

It sounds like he may have a bacterial infection given the skin lesions. Cloudy eyes can also be a symptom of this. You can treat this with Esha 2000.
