firefish gill sticking out


Recommended Posts

How long have you had the firefish? It could be physical damage to the gill cover from shipping/handling or fighting with other fish, if this is the case it could live a long time with the condition. It also could be something is irritating the gill like a parasite as Gig'em mentioned which would need immediate attention to keep it from spreading to other fish. Putting it in a QT to at least observe it would be a good idea if it's easy to catch.

(As a side note I've also seen fish keep one gill cover closed for some reason and only breath through the other side gill.)
