    Help with identification

    Hi guys after a bit of help my fish have been flashing and sulking.

    Took a couple of scrapes of different fish and this is what I found

    Is this trich ?

    One of my fish has lots of white waxy flaking substance on ot. I have always put this down to pox but during the scrape on the good parts of skin the white was coming off. Is this normal for pox ?

    ^^^This^^^
    However there are a lot of much smaller anomalies worth looking at.
    Can you increase the magnification?

    I have taken another scrape this. Time checking at higher magnification.

    I think I have found what is costia ?
    See attached videos
    If so there is loads on this one Scape

    If this is costia it's the first time for me so what's the best way to treat for it ? Tapatalk Cloud - Downlaoad File VID20191005143642.mp4Tapatalk Cloud - Downlaoad File VID20191005143546.mp4

    also it looks like the fish i have scrapped have a bacterial/fungus issue as there is some fluffy white areas would you treat for this after the costia ?

    Looking again I'd say you need to try and focus the image clearer.
    It's so blurred I'd not be certain.
    Deffinately flukes as can also see one clearer at the bottom of the screen in ths first video.

    is that a fluke ? i had them earlier in the year and they were a lot bigger than that guy.

    i will treat for the costia first as that is the more life threatening and then re scrape and have a look for some flukes

    You are probably right as you will be seeing it clearer than me.
