TifNee837 Posted January 25, 2021 Share Posted January 25, 2021 To state for the record, this is about a platy (or possibly swordtail) that actually belongs to one of my good friends, and who, although has many many more years than I do of experience in fishkeeping, has been like the luckiest hobbyist I know, for the fact that she has really not ever had to deal with any sort of illnesses in her tanks! Tank size- 30g Cycled approx 5 weeks (used filter media, plants and substrate from long established 55g tank) Temp- 75-77°F pH- 8 Ammonia- 0 Nitrite- 0 Nitrate- 20-40 Also using crushed coral as kh/buffer And there are only 2 other fish (both are swordtails) in the tank with the one I'm posting about (so 3 fish total) I have on hand (and am giving her) Maracyn 2 for the medication aspect of treatment - however, of the 3 levels of aquarium salt treatment, I am unsure as to which to recommend?? The platys/swordtails tail, over the course of 2 weeks, is now gone. Dorsal fin seems to be now also deteriorating, from what I could see in the video she sent me. Pics aren't the greatest - apologies - the last 3 are screenshots taken from the video. Thanks in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
