Either uronema or a bacterial infection (Vibrio).

If you can take a skin scrape (see here), and examine that under a microscope, we have slides of what uronema looks like:

Just ordered the one in the third link. I'm on my last butterflyfish. If it dies, I will microscope the gills.
The scope is supposed to be here on friday.

If it dies before friday, should I store it in the freezer?

@Jessican,

Did peroxide ever resolve your problems?
I recall you having similar issues with fish breathing heavy.
I was using peroxide to treat suspected velvet in the DTs. I’ve been peroxide dosing for months now, and have successfully added a number of fish to my tanks since. I’ve now tapered off the dosing in two tanks, and will be tapering off the other two here in the next month. After that, we’ll see if anything comes back once the UV bulbs start to die. So far so good, though.

I'm thinking of using peroxide on this fish. Can I dose along with copper? My other tank (observation) is occupied.
I'm afraid if I take out copper, ich cyct will infect the fish.

Peroxide dosing is really meant for a DT, not a QT, and I have no idea how it would interact with copper. The way I would use peroxide in a QT is in the hybrid TTM schedule where it’s not being added with other meds.

If you’re talking about using it with the fish with the red sores, then no, definitely don’t. It will just burn them.
