    Just noticed my cat has no mouth....... WTF! Is this from my gravel or something else ????

    My gravel doesn't seem like it would do this. I have two other cats and they look fine.

    Did you notice any deterioration lately? Doesn't seem like something that would just appear that quickly :huh:

    Hopefully just an isolated incident.

    From what I remember, I had a cory once that came down with similar symptoms. It did actually happen pretty quickly. I think I remember reading something about cories not showing symptoms right away because of the plates or something. Essentially they seem to get worse and worse until it finally becomes visible when it's really bad. You could always try treating him. They're pretty tough fish.

    I noticed last night but it didn't look that bad...... My guess from digging around for food it made it real bad until I looked again tonight.
