    I just noticed my hooded Wrasse on day 3 of QT with a damaged or wounded fin. He seemed fine when I got him from DD. He’s by himself in a 10g going through TTM. If you look close his fine bone seems exposed. Is this an infection?

    Thanks, that's what I figured.

    Anyone know where I can get Kanaplex, Metroplex, Furan2, or other antibacterial locally? Does AC carry any of those?

    I have some kanaplex. You should always use nitro and kana on new fish during ttm. It'll help with bacterial infection.

    I have metroplex if you need some.
    I bought mine from amazon since I couldn’t find any locally.

    I'm not speaking as a fish doctor. But it doesn't look like a new wound to me. It looks quite clean with a defined edge. From the photo I don't think it's infected. How does it look in person? Ratty at all? If it's not infected, I wouldn't treat. But that's just me.

    They will grow back he's just worry about bacterial infection especially in a dirty system like ttm.
