  1. Hi, all... We have a great betta fish, in a tank with excellent parameters... We rescued him and he's recovering from mild fin rot and constipation...and, now, has what appears to be an anal prolapse. The protrusion has grown to about 1/4 of an inch... I'm fasting him (did provide some frozen daphia), keeping water clean, and warm... He's a little less active, but still swimming and responds to us. But, I worry he's suffering and don't know what to do now for him. What are his chances for recovery? Thanks for any insights you can share.
  2. Any help is appreciated. I have a juvenile molly that has just developed a prolapse this morning. Looks like its an anal/vent prolapse. I am assuming it's intestines/intestinal. I see no signs of stress or discomfort on the fish. She's swimming around as normally as can be. I have read different treatments, from aquarium salt, to epsom salt, to melafix, to fasting, to simply aiming for pristine water conditions. Please let me know if anyone has any advice. I know it sounds crazy, but is there any way to "manually" push this back in? All advice is appreciated. Thanks
  3. My guppy fry has always been constipated since I have had it (surprise fry with my 6 adult males) Adults had gill fluke from day 1. Salt treatment failed. But the quarantine trio meds worked. But fry still had long stringy poop. 1 week after the end of treatment, my fry has its anal prolapsing. I will treat again with paracleanse after 2 weeks of the treatment but meanwhile, what should I do for the fry? Salt treatment again? Which level? 10 gallons, 76f pH 7.6 0/0/10 (ish. Cycle crashed, been doing a lot of WC and treating with prime) gh : 7, kh : 3 @Cory Thank you

    For the last4-5 days my Gold Saum has had this protrusion sticking from her vent. At first I thought it was a prolapse as many speculated so I set up a hospital tank for her and moved her in. Epsom salts the on the way. ..... BUT as soon as I moved her, and before any Epsom salts were in the water, it (the protrusion) went back in. So ... then I thought ok maybe it’s an egg tube? Now it’s back out again. Really need some help here. Don’t wanna medicate if it’s just an egg tube but it looks much bigger than any egg tube I’ve seen in research. Also it is housed with a male gold Saum and I’d love to breed them but a Jack Dempsey in the tank is a mean bastard and won’t let them nest. I’m thinking he might have to be moved into the separate tank. Please help. The pics are in order from originally cause for alarm, then retraction after I moved her, then it’s back but smaller. What’s going on??? I’d love to breed these guys!
