i have had 3 fish since july 12th.
two have died (Green ate Lappy and then died of Dropsy).
I cleaned that tank so good. I let it run and got Finneus. He's beautiful. Doing awesome. Had a small tear in his fin (definately from the plant) on the first day, but it healed without any problems and he was fine. He'd flare at his reflection at night, was eating well, swimming all over, etc.
I did his water change on Saturday and he freaked in the tank (i posted this previously) and when i put him back in, noticed he had torn fins. Today, they look HORRIBLE.
Is this normal? Do they look much worse before they get better? He's swimming and eating ok and flared up at his reflection tonight, but they look awful. He has no marks, no spots, nothing.
Why do I feel worse than the idiots at petco/petsmart!
