Sick SpadeFish


New member
Hello All,

We have a 300g tank were I work that is about 10 years old. The spadefish has been in it since then. She was caught off our coast full grown so we are not sure how old she really is.

Yesterday she started to look a little pale and today her eyes are cloudy and off of one of them looks like a string, brown in color. It has the same look as fecal material (from a small fish since it is long and skinny).

Some people here are saying it because she is soo old, but it came on so sudden I think it is a bacterial infection.

She is my favorite fish so I would like to help her get better if I can.

What do you think?
