Guppy not doing well


Recommended Posts

Ph: 8.2

Nitrate: 20-40

No Ammonia or Nitrite

My pregnant guppy is not doing well, with what looks like blood on the inside. She also has something hanging out of her but. I’ve had her for about 4 months,  and she has a bent spine but it has never slowed her down before.

It looks like a prolapse and some internal hemorrhaging or an internal bacteria infection it could had problems giving birth I would treat with Epsom salt baths 1 table for 2 gallons for no more than 15 minutes for a couple of days  as Epsom salt acts a muscle relaxant to help your fish reabsorb the prolapse hemorrhaging or possible bacteria infection I would do a course of kanaplex in food if she's still eating
