Dun you think it's alittle bit too troublesome when it can be done by doing some filtration cleaning and water changing with added salt if the gill curl was detected early? I cured gill curl problem fishes with this method and some show result as fast as overnight. No medication used infact, no powerhead used too. In some very bad water condition situation, I added a good bag of active carbon in helping with the process.

As most bros here have mentioned and agreed, gill curl is due to bad water management.

Just to share my view.

totally agree with you bro. i dont see the point of rubbing the gill plate of the aro and causing stress to it when there is a perfect and safe way to treat such problem. by rubbing on the gill plate we will also rub off the protective layer of the fish and increasing the chances of it from getting infections.

Thank you for sharing! It takes guts (and time too!) for a hobbyist to share such information and experience especially knowing that not all hobbyist will agree. But who cares...most important is you have shared what you think will be someday helpful to fellow hobbyist.

I only wanted to highlight what I really learned from all this solutions and everything (which i first heard from a good friend) .... take good care of your water and your water will take good care of your fish

Have a great day to all!

Early stage of gill curl can cure easily wt clean water n peat moss, but if too late secondary stage ask massage lady to massage also i dont think can cure just cut & trim easy & fast straight to the point.tks for sharing anyway.
