I've noticed that over the past week or so my male crowntail has been a bit more lethargic than normal.
I haven't changed anything in his tank, I haven't added anything new... Well, I added a few plants from my 29G, but no one in that tank has been having any issues.. so I doubt it's from that.
He's been eating fine.. but I've been fasting him for a few days because he looked a little bloated..
Here are my parameters
Tank size- 5 gallons
Temp- 80 F
I use Prime with every water change
I also use Vita-chem and garlic guard for food soakings on occasion
He has a nerite snail in there as well, but that guy is older than he is.
Drugs I have on hand if needed: API erythromycin, Kanaplex, API triple sulfa, Praziquel, Epson salt, AQ salt.
I feed NLS pellets every day, and fast one day a week. Rarely, maybe a few times a month I'll offer frozen brine shrimp or daphnia
I came home last night and saw that Mr. Squiggles looks pineconed.... He looks okay from the side.. but if you look form above it's apparent.
I took him out of his tank so I could take some pictures.
He was pooping in this one
This was from the side... with flash and he looks fine.. I don't get it.
Please help! I just lost a fish from a long term eye injury and really don't want to lose another :(
