I know what you mean, it just hangs there. If I look really closely, I can kinda see the end of his dorsal breaking off.

Hmm that's interesting, it would be nice if all the dead part just broke off eventually and lead to new healthy fin but I don't know how long that will take unfortunately. I'm still waiting for part of Gambit's fin to fall off too, the edge of his caudal where it's just black but nothing is happening to it :-/

That's frustrating
I just hate to see it hanging there, dead.
Do you think getting them to flare will have any effect?
Maybe it'll shake things up and the dead part will fall off.

I don't know! I've gotten Gambit to flare but his caudal doesn't flare out much, doesn't reach a HM status at all with his tail. He's such a lazy fish lol but so far nothing has really helped his tail even though I've been doing 2-3 water changes for him a week with the addition of Vita-Chem. I had tried AQ salt and oak leaves for tannins before and then tried 1 drop/gal of MelaFix which seemed to help healing for sure and then recently tried some KanaPlex, only one dose but saw no difference other than he colored up magnificently! lol so idk!

I hear ya though, it is really frustrating!

Lol oh gosh. I usually stick an IAL in there after every water change. Hopefully it'll start taking effect.

Yeah, I got to get some more oak leaves from my mom's yard, it's great since we've got like a bajillion oak tree's but I like to find those "perfect" leaves lol But yeah, hopefully that helps him as well!

You're so lucky you have an oak tree! MY old house in the states had one, and now I'm totally regretting moving. That tree was beautiful.

Sooo, I decided that I want to upgrade my sorority to a bigger tank, so I can move my frogs to the one they're currently in.

I'm looking into a 33 gallon or 55 gallon tank atm. Both are only $100, with stand, filter, heater, cover, included.
The 33 gallon is also including gravel, airpump, and driftwood.
Also, she/he lives really close to me, so it'd be a breeze to pick up/drop off.

The 55 gallon is huge (only reason I'm so tempted) , but the downside
is that It comes with 2 angel fish (which I'm not at all interested in) and a couple other fish. Uuugh.
And the seller lives in another city /sigh
I COULD FIT SO MANY FEMALES IN THERE >;D

Here are the pics btw, courtesy of Kijiji xD:

55 gallon:



33 gallon:
No decent pic of it, but it's a standard tank.

I kinda miss the old him, but the new him is just as stunning <3

Really do want that 55G!!
I'll keep you posted on which one I get.
I think I'll start a whole new journal about the sorority journey in
the new tank xD
