Re: Silversides and fungus

Well the Fungus is more of a white hairy pathe(s). It is not what I would
call long but it is defiatly raised up on the fish. So I would have to say
the Hairy description is the best. It seems to develop very quickly. I
assume it is actually there for several days but I cant see it.

The other fish (bluegill and Bass fry) never get it. Just the silversides. I
plan to salt that tank soon and add some more silverisdes. They are quite
abundant in our lake.
