Well it looks like the male also had one eye and his lip damaged, but he was eating his grindals enthusiastically enough so hopefully he should heal up okay. It sort of looks like a shark took a bite out of his anal fin.



This is why I never suggest putting a splendens male in with a sorority or a single female. You never know what these fish are going to do. My wilds don't really have the viciousness of a splendens and they still can do quite a bit of damage.

Hope he gets better


Update: Jerome, my dojo loach, is alive. He is active. I think he was just sleeping or resting. I turned the light off and he became so alert.

Hopefully your dojo loach was just stressed out and had a more 'unorthodox' reaction. Sounds like it might be feeling more comfortable with the lights off for now.

I don't think the female is repentant for what she did. If I was that male I would be very afraid as she has crazy eyes haha.

So I decided to quit smoking.
Well i'm going to try and cut down because I've tried cold turkey before and failed so maybe if I wean myself off I can do it.
