A while ago, Ds lost his upper jaw. i have no clue how it happened, he lives in a 10 gal heated, filered, divided with Fl. ph, nitrate, and ammonia levels are good, so water quality is probebly not the cause. I assumed that somehow, Fl had acess to Ds like he jumped or something, so i lowered the water half of the original level. on his side he has a log in which he can enter, and a few silk plants.(no gravel) fortunatly, hes still eating, flaring, and acting all awesome.
A few days later, Fl's upper jaw started falling apart! now half of it is gone exposing white flesh on both of em. If I remember right, one of his pectoral fins stoped moving the night before he lost his jaw. it also got a small red dot. The day, he lost his jaw, another red dot appeared on his tail. Im sure its not blood, cause his fins arent torn. these dots kind of come and go, slowly fading one day and reappearing in the next week or so. Like Ds, he's still happy and he hasent gone pale or lost any weiight, which first i assumed waas fish turbuculosis. on his side is a cave and no gravel.
I'm doing 100% water changes weekly (Im not lazy with water changes, so really, i dont mind) with the 1 tea. salt per gal. with twice the conditioner cause that is suposed to help with wounds and ripped fins. I'm not allowed to buy commercial med. so ya. Treatment so far isn't really helping, so please help!
