So I got my first fishy emergency (I was dreading this would happen eventually). I looked at Flair this afternoon and this is how his tail looked. I noticed him hanging around the intake filter tube A LOT today. He won't stay away from it! He keeps wrapping himself around it. I do not remember his tail looking like this when I went to bed last night. And my mom would have mentioned it to me if it did (he was flaring for her). This is a before and after picture of his tail. I don't have any aquarium salt, I got to go get some tomorrow before I go to work. I had to actually turn my filter off because he won't leave the tube alone.
Sorry these pictures are a little blurry... he wouldn't hold still.
So I have never done salt baths. I am definitely going to go to your thread neenjar. But what is the best thing to do the salt bath in? A small hospital tank?
I don't think this is fin rot. I mean it happened so quickly...to quickly to be fin rot right?
