HLLE: Head and lateral line erosion


Recommended Posts

i have a koran Angelfish with head and lateral line erosion. it is a happy guy, he just has some of it on his face.

i see some people saying to stabilize tank conditions, and to let it be, while others suggest treatment.

anybody ever had this?

I heard melafix might work...

please share any experience or suggestions.


He is in a quarantine tank right now, and is eating well, all treatment options are up for consideration

I have seen pictures where HLLE has been reversed. Maybe not completely perfect but back to a still beautiful fish. It may take quite awhile though.


Stray voltage is believed to cause it but I do not know if it proven.


Whatever medicine route you go with make sure it is the one you want to use as switching medications can cause even more stress then the cure.
