So, I went on vacation last-week, leaving all of my animals in the care of my cousin's college-age daughter. Everyone was fine accept for my poor, little blue HM. His plant had rotted in his bowl. You can imagine, after a week. . . I was so furious that she didn't think to change the water. Just left me a note saying, "I fed the fish, but their water seems kind of dirty." >_< By the time I'd got to him, he was barely moving, emaciated and had lost most of his color! Horrible!
SEVERAL water changes later and some ICH+ (noticed when he did swim, there was a lot of darting and general neurotic behavior.) For the most part, he seems fine now. He's gotten his color back and his breathing is more normal. He's eating. He's a little more timid than normal (think that's from all the water changes. I catch him swimming around when I walk into the kitchen, but he immediately hides in his NEW plant when he sees me.
) I haven't noticed any lesions or such on him, BUT. . . His anal fin is curling.
I looked it up and what I found said that it is normal after trama and not really anything to worry about if everything else is alright. Is this correct?
