    nothing really, can resolve itself on its own if its due to poor diet. If its caused from parasites-you will need to treat the fish and the problem may go away when the irritation is gone. Maybe Rocksor knows more about this, or would recommend something like an Epsom salt bath (though it may irritate the fish). Try to PM him.

    It depends on what is causing it. Some folks tried an Epsom salt bath and it worked. Others just quit feeding the fish for 1 week, and that worked.

    yes the fish can die since a prolapse anus can prevent the digestive system from working properly.

    Well, that really sucks! Carl has recommended a topical treatment, improved diet, and water quality (looking at redox). We have ordered a better quality food (still waiting for it to arrive) and Wonder Shells to improve health. I am also thinking of reviewing UV for the tank.

    UV is unnecessary unless you have ultra-sensitive fish like electric blue jack dempseys.

    So perhaps it might be just another thing to buy but is not necessary for the typical tropical tank? There seems to be about a million different things that all sound so good for the aquarium, but there probably is a limit or you'll go broke chasing all these products!

    I never found a need for a UV.
