What do fish with chemical burns look like?

I think my fish may have chemical burns.


Answer by  Spork (88)

Fish with chemical burns often have a "beaten up" apperance, sometimes with cloudy film over their eyes. In severe cases, the scales may fall away, exposing red or raw-looking skin.

Well they look like they have some scars on them. The scars may have browning all over the fish. Make sure you throw it away.


Answer by  Hammy (244)

They should look like white lesions on the sides of the fish or places where the scales are coming off. It is hard for fish to get chemical burns though, unless you used untreated water in the tank.

Fish with chemical burns usually don't live. If they do, they may have deformities with their fins, gills, and swimming abilities. Their scales may fall off or be very flaky looking.
