yassy Posted August 5, 2021 Share Posted August 5, 2021 Tank info: PH 8, KH 7, GH 5 yesterday, ammonia zero, nitrite zero, nitrate 5 today ammonia 0.25,nitrite zero, I did not check nitrate. Tank size 10 gallon Tank temp 77F number of fish in the tank:5 Only this guy developed this red dots on tail _______________________ I got guppy yesterday and one of them in quarantine tank developed this red spots on tail.Could be injury (he was most skitish one and as soon as he went into tank, he was sticking to the aquarium coop sponge filter and it could have rub against his tail, or maybe nipped by other fish), could be ammonia (yesterday it was ammonia zero nitrite zero, nitrate 5 but today, ammonia was 0.25ppm.Nitrite was zero though. At this point, I added prime and stability until I figures out what to do. I would like to try aquarium salt first.Is this good way to go? Only this guy has this and rest of them are fine. This guy got more comfortable in the tank and he has good appetite and swim fine, not hiding corner or anything like that. Day 1. Do water change and add 2 tablespoons aquarium salt. My tank is 10 gallon. Day 2 and after. After water change add 1 teaspoon salt. I take out 2 gallon when water change. Other question will be how often do I need to do water change when dosing aquarium salt? I normally do weekly water change but I should do more frequent? I have used aquarium salt in the past last year or so with fin nipped guppy and started from 1 tsp per gallon dosage but I do not remember if I added initial dose of salt to the tank size first or not. When I was doing that, one day, I up the salt level to 1 tbs per 2 gallon dosage (I do not remember the level but took from salt post from aquarium coop blog and up the level and I guess it was sudden change and guppy I was treating passed awaty next day..So I wanted to make sure step of adding salt to the tank and its amount.
