My Pao abei has become sick I think and I don’t know what to do. I hope you can help me.
A few weeks ago she developed a little white spot above her snout, yet it has developed so far that the white is occupying her entire head.
I have never seen this before and normal treatments don’t solve the problem.
Do you perhaps know what to do and are willing to help me?
In Japan, this condition is called Shirakumo disease, also known as Costia or Chilodonella disease.
Costia (Costia necatrix) or Chilodonella (Chilodonella) is a medical condition that infects pufferfish when they become ill due to stress or other factors.
It can also be transmitted by a drop in water temperature or deterioration of water quality.
The disease often occurs when a heater is not installed during the change of season or when the temperature is easily changed.
Treatment includes salt water baths and methylene blue, which is used to treat white spot disease.
It is also important to treat the water temperature and water quality deterioration that caused the stress.
