Figure 8 puffer tail has a raised red area

Post by Puff800 »

Help!

Hi

Can someone help me. I recently bought a figure 8 puffer online and he has a red raised area on his tail. I dont know what it is. At first I thought it was fin rot but it's not.

Looks like a secondary bacterial infection from the fin rot.
