Diseases or Disorders of the Mouth
+ The sucker is extended and cannot withdraw
+ Mouth is rough and red (mouth rot early)
+ Mouth is rotting off, lips hanging away or gone. (Mouthrot advanced)
+ Mouth is badly deformed, not red at all.
Action Items
+ For early mouthrot, medicated food may still be taken.
+ If the sucker cannot be withdrawn, sometimes a bone or ligament in the mouth parts is ruptured or broken.
+ Injections will be essential to save the advanced cases of mouth rot because it's out of the question that the fish would eat medicated food.
+ The sucker may need to be removed or it may collapse in the healing process. If this happens the mouth is small and cannot apprehend food.
+ No doubt the best course would be antibacterial bath or topical treatment. This dip can get everywhere, kills bacteria wonderfully and isn't going to make a mouth rot worse.
Needed or Recommended Items
+ Most of the time the fish will not take medicated food but as soon as they will it would be a good idea.
+ Injections would be ideal if they were feasible.
+ Dressing the mouth with Debride would be good.
+ No doubt the best course would be antibacterial bath or topical treatment.
