First some tank details:
Divided 22.33 Gallon tank (apparently from working out dimensions)
Rock in each tank - Bobby's covered in Java Moss, Castiel's yet to be covered fully.
Heater & Filter
Temp usualy around 28* C (82 degrees Fahrenheit?)
50-75% water changes once a week with the use of Prime conditioner.
Let's start with Castiel first.
A few weeks ago, he got sucked up while I was doing a tank clean, and it damaged his fins etc, however recently it seems to have got worse. His scales look strange and his fins seem all clamped.
I did have a slime issue with the tank these two are in, however it got a full clean today, so hopefully that might help. He has been fairly active, and still eating, up until the water change/tank re-do today. He is currently just sitting on the bottom of the tank. I've started to add some aquarium salt (hardly any - 1/2 tablespoon for the whole tank).
Here are some pictures:
What do you think the best course of action is. If need be, I can put one into a much smaller tank (1gal) to treat, but I don't have any other tanks.
Bobby on the other hand is not worrying me as much as Castiel. When I got Bobby he had a lovely full tail, however the next day it was almost all gone (I'm assuming he bit it, most likely due to the stress of moving to a new tank, and one with a stronger filter). I'm just concerned as it seems his tail isn't healing at all (but doesn't seem to be getting worse) while Chuck's is almost completely healed, and his was already chomped when I got him home. There is no difference in the tanks, what I am feeding them or anything, except for the slime issue.
Could the slime have been stopping their healing? Should I start to medicate either of them?
I stress so much over my fish :(
