Hi everyone.

So, it looks like I have zoa pox. Furan 2 seems to be the only way to cure this but we dont have this in South Africa?

Apparently discus owners use it on their fish because they are prone to bacterial infections or something. Again, we have discus fish in South Africa but no Furan 2?

What do the discus fish owners use here then?

Is it called something else here? I really need help with this please.

Jaco.

@459b The lights are on right now, I just used the flash to better show the spots.

I just saw these now too. But they look more like stars or fragments of stars?

Furan 2 and what its intended use is for. What is used here for the same fish diseases?

Apparently the active ingredients in Furan-2 are the following: 60 mg Nitrofurazone and 25 mg Furazolidone per packet

yip, asterina stars. They should not be the culprits affecting your Zoa.

@shoolfish no didnt, everything melted eventually, only 1 head left here and there and they are way smaller than they were and also dont seem to grow at all, the furan2 I ordered never made it here, I did get a refund at least.

Hey guy i also had a problem a few months back where my zoas where melting away. It was the asterina stars that where eating them. Exactly the same as the pic earlier posted. Got rid of the stars and zoas recovered.
