I have 3 bluegills, 1 pleco and a bunch of snails in a 56 gal tank. My larger bluegill has red ulcers around one gill at first it was just 1 but I noticed another one has formed. I previously thought it was from being aggressive and killing 6 fish we got from the store but im doubting that as it was over 2 weeks ago. It kinda looks like gill flukes. I did a 50% change last week and added another filter to the water. Will be doing a 25% change tomorrow. Do any of you have experience with parasites or bacterial infections in fresh water fish? Looking for what else I should do.
Melafix and pimafix are two good solutions, try and google exactly what it is and go the pimafix fungal route or the melafix bacterial one. Do NOT overdose or combine the two, I killed a bunch of beautiful cichilds that way :/

Well gotta treat the whole tank now as it seems some of the other ones may be catching it. My snails are going to die more than likely ah well they are cheap to replace. Its about 10 inchs or so so far to large for the small tanks I can get for free. i have been tempted to turn him into a fillet a few times kills all other fish I put in there unless its to big to eat then tends to leave em alone.
