In Reply to: Hole in the shell disease?Fungus or Bacteria??HELP! posted by Flavia Guimar„es on May 30, 2002 at 01:09:45:
Flavia - go to this site and join this group. Post your request for info there. There is a product on the market in Singapore -- I don't know if it is available by you (you are in Malaysia right?)
Any the product is called Cleanse and it is good for bacterial as well as fungal problems. If it is bacterial some form of antibiotic therapy is most likely necessary. Any way there are folks there who can help you out.
: I bought a baby turtle few weeks ago with white fungus.I treated her with Acriflavine and she was OK.Then I found a small scar in her carapace the same place where the fungus were before the treatment.But the scar is getting bigger(it looks like white plastic) and it is almost perforating the shell.I didnt know what was happening with her until I read in the INTERNET about the "hole in the shell"disease.It looks like that?What can I do to save her? Should I start with the Acriflavine again? But I read also that the treatment against fungus can cause an increase in the bacteria.That's true? The "Hole in the Shell"is caused by bacteria or by fungus??
