The first picture is her right side it looks good and normal. The second side is her left side and it looks really rough. Any thoughts would be helpful? Her home is a community 40 gallon hexagon tank. There are small tetras, moscow guppies, another powered blue gourami, a very docile betta and lots of Cory's. The tank parameters are the best they have been in a while. I am wondering if she is getting beat up by the other gourami who is a bit of a bully. Or is it something like Popeye. Might be time to take the bully back to the coop ☹. I have her my girl in a 2 gallon hospital tank. I am treating with API aquarium salt and almond leaves. Since the tank is uncycled I added fluval cycle in the hospital tank and some prime. Is there anything else I can do?
I got a back injury this weekend and wasn't able to physically attend to my aquariums until today, when I found her like this. Normally I just go to the coop and the awesome employees help me through this stuff although I can't drive right now so here I am concerned and worried. My fish are so important to me. Now I have you guys to reach out to. Very grateful for that.
