I got back from vacation (Salmon's tank is at the office), and noticed some weird things with the tank. I fished him out immediately and put him in a quarantine bowl. I will clean/disinfect his tank before putting him back. How do I deal with the live plants and logs? Is it enough to just rinse them off with water? I will throw out the rocks if I need to.
I was very conscious about doing a 50% water change weekly, during the last few weeks, I noticed even more nips on his fins so I turned the filter off, which he seemed to get better slightly, and during my week long vacation, I made the mistake of leaving the filter off - but I had a colleague change his water.
A few weeks ago, a couple of these tiny snails popped up in the tank, I didn't know where they came from but figured they may be able to help cycle the tank, so I didn't bother looking into it. Now that I look at the tank, I can see at least 10 snails visible enough, and MANY of them the size of a pen dot all over the sides of the tank. Are they dangerous, as it seems they're multiplying at an insane rate? Also, my rocks at the bottom turned from white to black, and the other side of the tank, the rocks turned from white to brown.
Salmon really doesn't like his quarantine tanks, so I'd love some insight on what I need to do to get his tank back to normal. Thanks!
