Help - fungus on oranda wen?

Post by momochi » Wed Jul 04, 2018 9:38 pm

Hi i hope you guys can help. The past few days I noticed my oranda has started getting fluffy white tuffs on his head. Can you tell me what it is and what I can do?

Thanks!ImageImage.jpg[/IMG]

Hi momochi,

This may not be fungus, it can be part of the headgrowth.

Don't buy or put and medication at this point to upset your bio-system in the tank.  Just do regular water change to monitor the situation.  

If it is fungus, it will sink into the headgrowth and cause the headgrowth to be slightly redish on the edge of the "fungus".  From the photo, it is not so, at this point.

Keep us posted...........we will try to advise accordingly.

In my experience, some adult lionhead will have this type of 'discharge' out from the gap on wen.. it's a fat tissue .. (if you are able to pick it up and put onto your finger, you will see a transparent fat tissue)..
