redness no appetite iridiscent shark #1
. Ive rescued him 3 days ago and he isnt eating since then. He is not very active and he has a pale redness near his tail and along his body. I suspect that he has some kind of internal infection. Ive had another iridiscent shark that showed the same symptoms and after almost 2 weeks without eating a treatment with kanaplex solved the problem, so im thinking about doing the same with him. What do you think?

Re: redness no appetite iridiscent shark #2
What conditions did he come from? If there was the possibility of ammonia and/or nitrite in his tank that may be what caused the redness and he might just need good clean water to put things right. If he doesn't improve try the Kanaplex as it has worked before.
