Its only minor, and it already looks slightly better now that i moved her into a somewhat larger tank, which is used as a holding tank for my HM. I guess i'll see tomorrow morning how bad it gets. If worst comes to worst, I can ask my teacher or my lunch lady, both of which house fish, if they have any spare Fin rot treatments.

My lunch lady has salt water tanks, so, she'd be able to supply me with a small bit of sea salt

Sea salt for saltwater fish and aquarium salt are two different things. Don't use sea salt with your fresh water fish ever!! :p

if you have a walmart nearby, they sell the aquarium salt for a few bucks for quite a bit of salt.

Sadly, she wont be an issue anymore. I awoke this morning to find her dead in the holding tank. Upon returning from school today, i removed her and rinsed the holding tank with water, dumped out the water, cleaned the rocks and re-introduced the male with the remains of the gallon of room-temp water that i had aging for a few days.

I'm hoping whatever got her isnt in the tank still.

Mother will be buying me a 5th, and I may push for a 6th just incase Sam is too aggressive to live in the 10 gallon.

I'm quite sad about this. She was so young, younger than my other girls. Poor thing.

I'm hoping that the next girl, which I will be getting tomorrow, is healthy. Or is from a batch that just arrived at the pet store
