Melanosis (Black Fungus)

Fish suffering from this illness exhibit dark furry patches on the body. It is caused by disorders of the blood and general debility.

The treatment is the exact same as for fungus, but the affected parts may also be painted with a answer of one component water to one component peroxide of hydrogen (20 vols) occasionally.
