KittenFishMom Posted December 14, 2022 Share Posted December 14, 2022 (edited) water temp = 78.8f Ammonia = 0 (NO3)PPM =50 (NO2)PPM = 0 Hardness (GH)PPM above 300 Buffer(KH) PPM = 0 pH = 6.4 @Colu Please let me know if you think this might be contagious. I was going to hold my last 10 guppies in this tank while the person who is getting them gets her tank cycled. Received fish via mail about 2 weeks ago. I have had them in quarantine 10 gallon tank (cycled guppy tank, no guppies), I have been feeding and observing, but have not done the Quarantine trio yet. Hoping I might not need too because they are young and from a private breeder, with minimal exposure to pathogens. Yesterday I noticed the KH and pH had dropped so I added crushed coral and did a partial water change with aged aerated (ammonia = 0) well water. Today I noticed one of the 6 fish had a light spot at the back of her head/neck. I don't think it has changed shape or size. It looks off white, but there are IALs in the tank. I don't think it looks fuzzy or shiney or swollen. I netted all 6 of the fish in a specimen container to look for any spots on the other fish. They all were frightened and were hard to photograph. I did the best I could. I was hoping having them together would help calm them. They are back in the tank now. I got 12 photos. I cropped 5 for this post, but can post more. This tank has a dish 1/2 full of sand and lots of filtration and some driftwood and plants and snails. I can photo the tank if that would help. I have been feeding bbs, Xtreme nano, sinking pellets, and every so often a few Vibra Bites. everything in the tanks looks normal, except for the spot. the fish are feeding, swimming, hunting, and patrolling as normal. Snails are snailing around, plants look fine. A bit of hydra from the bbs, but I have stopped them when I saw the hydra. most of the group, one with spot top left Edited December 15, 2022 by KittenFishMom typos Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
