Thread: Poor tetra

  1. #1

    Default Poor tetra

    One of my black skirts has had a blood red blob on him for a week. Finally netted him out today and have him in the quarantine tank with Melafix. I got a sneaky feeling one of my featherfins took a nip from him as they were in the tank with them for several days.

    Looks as it could also be an ulcer so he may be going bye-bye.

    You ever notice how the fish we want to catch hides? I have 19 black skirts and here they are.........18 of them going back and forth, back and forth. The one I want to find is hiding in the sword plants trying to get me to tear my tank apart to get him!

    They have an instinctive knowledge of when it might be their time to head to the glue-factory...

    Try adding salt like you did to that angel a long time ago. That might work.
