I can't do pics because my computer gets overloaded when I plug my camera in so it tends to crash. A lot.
But here we go~
Tank size: 3 gallons
Live plants: none
Water temp: 78-82 (constant)
Water changes: 50% every 3 days, 100$ every Saturday
Tank mates: none other than single shrimp
Had fish since beginning of January
Glass marble/flattened marble substrate
Fake plants include plastic and one silk plant
Air bubbler is run during the night (usually from 9pm-8am)
Activity and interaction: Mirror is left next to tank for 10 minutes, 2 sessions a day for stimulation
Water conditioner and additives: none
Water: hard well water, absolutely no chlorine or copper
And I know it's from the plants, though.... they're not sharp however when Om gets squeezed between them and the tank walls they rip.
Another one was found today midway up the belly fin and it's a small tear (looks like a little slit) and doesn't impair the fish's swimming in any way.
No parasites were found in case the fish was rubbing due to irritation.
