Guppy finrot?


Recommended Posts

Temprature 77 F (25°C)

PH: 8
KH: 6
GH: 15

Tank is up for about 2 years, NH3/4: 0 NO2: 0 NO3: 10-20

One of me aquariums has a fancy guppy with a tearing in hes tail.
I was wondering if it is vin rot, or anything else I have to use something for?
First it was one tearing, now he has two.

This tank had salt in it for about a month or 3 ago, changed out by water changed every 2 weeks. (1 Tbsp of salt per 2 gallons)

No it is not. I have one with a tail like that he occasionally gets carried away and tears. I try to find the offending object but don’t always.  Unless it starts to go whitish or tatter or clearish He is just fine it will mend in time.

Amazon frogbit (Limnobium Laevigatum)
Aslong it is under the leds (not in the shade) it wil grow like a pest, throwing away like 200/300 a month.


Yeah it is me adhd fish to, had to add.
Always bussy but also a lot in the gravel searching for food.
Wil keep an eye on it, but hes not the one that chills out to let hes body heal. 😉
