So I went out and bought Rasputin the whisper internal filter for his 10 gallon today. I put it in and he's having problems swimming against the current! Should I take it out, or is there something I can do from home that could help?
Also, Phoenix has changed colors overnight and I'm very concerned...
About a quarter of her anal fin (the upmost part closest to her body), which was solid red, has now turned a tan color. I don't know what's up with that, but it seems to have happened overnight, and she has some major stress stripes going on.
One more question. My halfmoon, Hank, has something going on with his fins. What does tail rot look like? I just noticed it when I got home, his fins look very ruffled up at the ends, but he's happy as can be. He's eating like a pig, he made a bubble nest while I was at the store, and he's flaring around like nothings wrong, but I'm still concerned. So I put some aquarium salt and melafix in his tank. (He's in a 10 gallon and in the same tank as Phoenix.)
I changed their tank water last night (about a 75% water change) added the conditioner and what not, to both Rasputin and Hank's tanks. Rasputin and Penny seem fine and dandy.
