I can't honestly see any problems myself by looking at the photo. However, if things get worse in the next few days then you could treat the tank if you want. But like I said, can't see anything that worries me too much at the moment.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

It doesn't look that bad in the photo but i cant really get a better one, parts of he's scales are actually peeling away and hanging off, the're are no sharp edges in the tank as i took those out, because i have already learned that they like to hurt themselves on them

My 9 inch tiger had tail rot.. Took about 8 days of medication in a hospital tank to heal.. The only thing that worried me then was the fact that he completely went off food for most of those days.. Would spit most of his food out,..
