I have some zebras a while ago one had a growth on each of it's pectoral fins, i tried to treat it but it eventually died. All of the rest of the fish were fine.

I noticed last Thursday that another fish has type of growth on one of it's pectoral fins. The growths look like the pictures from: http://www.zebrapleco.com/health.php#warts.

I am not really sure how to treat this. I have moved the fish to a hospital tank. Please advise.

I have f1 zebras from three different sources. One group had slightly snubbed noses....the snubs are the ones getting sick, coincidence?

Hi, sorry no one seems to have replied, perhaps becasue they cannot offer any ideas. I think growths are difficult to cure and need speicialist surgery. if only the snubs getting it this would suggest a genetic disposition. let us know how they get on. good luck

What is your water quality? Have you fed them with live food? Either way might caused some kind of infections.
