Aurora (my male veiltail) is sick. The water is good, the temperature is fine, I don’t know what’s wrong. He rarely eats his food, and you all know that he goes crazy about pellets normally. He rests in the bottom of the tank, only moving to get air or go to a different spot to rest. His stomach is bloated. What should I do??? Anyone who sees this, if you could reply ASAP then I would be so grateful.
Hi, The water parameters are as follows: Nitrate: 20 Nitrite: 0 GH: 150 (usual) Chlorine: 0 KH: 80 (usual) pH 7.8/8.0 (usual) Temp: 72 - I just realized this and am raising the temperature to 80 This is my brother's fish who I knew had been struggling for a month or two, but I just saw recently how badly he's doing. His tail is usually a half-moon shape, so I think that he's had some serious fin rot. Can someone help diagnose and advise? His coloration is quite faded from when we got him, especially on his tail and near his head. The heater was displaying an incorrect temperature, so I just realized he's been a little chilly for a while and I'm raising the temperature now. I think this guy is going to need a bit more than warm waters to recover, however. Is there a recommended course of action? Many thanks for any advice!
