Hello, today i took a trip to an aquarium & noticed a lovely black & red female in a tank, she seemed very quiet in the tank, hiding behind a rock & quite lethargic....I don't know what posessed me to get her, but i wanted to save her & give her a proper chance. I can't load any pictures yet as this is new laptop unfortunately but will do soon. She is seperated in a container which is floating around my 100litre tank so she can see other fish.
her symptoms are:
- very quiet (but still surfacing for air & looking around & is still 'with it') but stays close to bottom
- constantly like breathing 'heavy', opening her mouth like a goldfish under water which i noticed the others don't tend to do
- not eaten anything yet
- slight white bits on her side
- shakes abit, her fins seem to shake, or her whole body does if u get my drift
hope that gives some sort of idea, im about to research on the net, but thought i'd see if you have any ideas.
hopefully she'll make it....
