1 A clean body wound may show some blood, but the flesh will be white and smooth with lit­tle or no swelling.

2 A clean fin wound will look like a piece of fin miss­ing, with no fin rays show­ing, no red­den­ing or white edges.

3 When bac­te­ria in­fect a wound, the flesh will red­den, swell slightly and scales may stick up around the wound.

4 Fun­gus takes on a few forms – usu­ally it’s fluffy and white, like cot­ton wool, but can some­times look flat and white. Fun­gus can be wiped off eas­ily.
