This question probably pops up all the time but i'm still going to ask it. My female, Artemis seems to be either tail biting/fin biting or has torn her bottom (sorry, can't remember what that fin is called) fin. I do very regular water changes and apart from a pesky algae problem the water quality is good. Is there anything else i should do to help her get better/stop infection?
Does her tail look like she's been biting or is it just her tail type causing those spikeys?
Also, what can i do to deal with the algae problem that has cropped up? This stuff is bright green, i suspect it is green hair algae, will upping the co2 level in my tank work to control it? What else can i do? I have a 5 g planted tank with only the female as an occupant. Do snails eat algae? I have this huge ramshorn in my snail breeder tank, will he eat it? I'm not sure i want to put anything else in there to eat it (fishwise i mean)
