KittenFishMom Posted December 23, 2021 Share Posted December 23, 2021 On day 5 of my QT tank, I noticed a chunk missing from one of my guppy's tail. I am wondering if it is fin rot or a case of nipping. There is a native barred killifish and a male betta in the tank, either might have nipped. I also lost a guppy the first night of QT with a damaged tail that I thought was fin rot. I will try to get a photo, but so far I haven't been able to get a good shot. The piece that is missing from the tail is rectangular and goes back to the fishes body with tail fin above and below the missing chunk. The tail was in excellent shape on day 4 of QT. Do you think it is fin rot or nipping? If it is fin rot, should I do the full ich-x & antibioitic a second time? Maybe adding the paraclense, or holding off on the paracleanse for another week? If it is nipping, which fish do you think it might be and how do you recommend isolating the fish for the rest of the QT? (I will have a second week of QT for Paracleanse after this week of ich-x and the antibiotic that starts with "M". Thanks for all your years of wisdom 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
