My new Dragon Delta has a bump on his dorsal fin. Its slightly red around the area too. I did not notice it yesterday when I picked hm up from the store.
I had him loos in the tank yesterday to see how he went. He really did have a hard time and stayed at the bottom most and was breathing really ard with some little twitches (maybe gill bugs?).
So I took him out and floated him in the cup with some salt and 2 drops of Stress Coat so he could relax. This morning he looked much better so I released him and he seems to be doing ok. He is flaring at his neighbor and exploring. Breathing is a little quick still, but I know he is also putting in a lot of energy to swim around. I am still seeing a little twitching too.
I just put him back in his cup with new water and some Quick Cure too see if that will help his gills. I can tell he is a little stressed.
What he is housed in:
A single split 10gal with some live plants.
Hardness 150 (I have hard water here :/)
Any help would be wonderful. My white HM that I had to put down was kinda like this. I really don't want to lose this little guy.
