CT_ Posted March 19, 2022 Share Posted March 19, 2022 (edited) So I lost a guppy about 3-4 months ago (i forget exactly) I didn't think too much because maybe that one was just poor stock and over bread in really hard water (my tap is soft, but my tank is about 175tds). Then two weeks ago I lost another one (he might have been an endler or hybrid, he was quite small). This time before he died I noticed he was slowly looking duller and his anal fins were looking raggid and he was looking quite fat. at the time I chalked it up to him being to aggressive at feeding but now I'm not so sure. I also don't feed much, or every day. That was my oldest guppy (a little over a year old) so I thought maybe old age (I'm VERY good at denial). but now the last guppy in this tank who has also been looking fat is starting to look even fatter. like as round as he is tall. I don't see any actual pineconing but he's def bloated. I've noticed some stringy poop but i see it rarely (so either he's mostly not constipated, or he's REALLY constipated). He's still active, he still begs for food and actively eats. As for a diagnosis though I'm a bit at a loss. It could be all three guppies have the same slow disease, or... not. I don't see any other sign of disease. My 7 cardinals are all fine. The otos all seem fine (though they're really hard to count because they take turns hiding). I inject co2 (on the low side). kh ~2 gh 6ish ph mid 7 during the day (tap comes out at 8.0-9.0 but has 20 tds too, so its not very buffered). 0/0/50 or less on nitrogen. (EDIT: temp is 24c) Here's the best photos I can get with a phone and an excited guppy. Any ideas? epsom salt bath? aquarium salt? meds?
