Sick Murray river rainbow

Post#1 » Sat Dec 17, 2016 8:45 am

hello all
I have kept Murray river rainbows for a while now but one of my older individuals has started to show white patches on his fins and body, the fins that had the white patches then eventually rot off and the white patches continue. I have isolated him in another tank to protect my other fish. he is being treated with MELAFIX. this has seemed to improve his mood but not the patches. any advice on what the problem is, how to treat it and how to prevent it would be great
