Hey so I just went to feed my man and I saw this on his back, it looked like his scales are like falling off or something I have so idea what’s going on or how it could have happened. Please if anyone knows what’s up tell me I’m really concerned, thank you.

Hello,

That looks to be scraped scales possibly. Could he be rubbing his back up against something
in this tank, or wedging himself in between something abrasive which could cause scale
damage?
You can get some raw, unpasteurized honey or some antibiotic ointment, to put on those areas.
They should technically clear up & heal over soon, with a shed.

Possibly, im gonna try to monitor him a little more than normal to see what the problem might be. But thank you, I think I have some honey that would work so I’ll do that right now!

Hello,

How is your boy's scales looking today? I hope that the honey helps him out. Just be sure
that there aren't any loose insects running around in his tank that could be attracted to the
honey!
Did you ever figure out what he could have scraped himself on in his tank?
