Hi! I am new to fishkeeping. I have a tropical community tank with guppies, endlers, platies, mollies, gouramis and angelfish.

I have lost 2 guppies in the last 2 weeks and upon some research I am guessing that there is an outbreak of columnaris. I have a lot of plants in the tank. Water Parameters are good. Tank might be considered slightly over stocked.

The guppies start to develop a whitish patch on their bodies around the dorsal region. When I seem to notice this the fish usually remains in one spot, doesn't swim much and stays in the upper regions of the tank and dies within 1-2 days. Unfortunately I do not have any pictures.

What should I do?

Thanks!
Sam

It looks stable at the moment. No more deaths for the last 4-5 days. One of my honey gouramis has a black patchy appearance under the mouth, leading up to the belly. Is this something to get worried about? Or is he getting mature? He swims and eats fine.

Thanks .
Sam.
