Exclamation Cotton like fungus.

Iím pretty sure my little guy has a fungus but Iím not sure how to treat it. Ive had my little guy for 6 months and ive never had any issues. Its pretty mild atm, I just noticed them this morning. Ive heard salt baths, but Iím not 100% sure.

Default Re: Cotton like fungus.

Brew a cup of plain black tea, let it steep until it's cooled, add the tea to a tub of decholorinated water, add your lotl to the tub, do that for 15 minutes, 3 times a day.

I usually use salt baths but it is stressful on your axie so you can give the tea baths as above a try first.
