Ok so I'm not sure if this is exactly an emergency or not because it's only happened the past 3 times I've done water changes but.... well...
Ok background first:
I change Genie's water every other day (changed it just last night) or sooner if I feel it's necessary.
I only use tap water and Jungle's Start Right water conditioner (the amount recommended for healing fins which is 2 tsp per 10 gallons so about 1 tsp for 5 gallons and therefore 1/2 tsp for 2.5 gallons) and 1 tsp of Aq. salt since he's in a 2 gallon container. That's it.
LATELY (the past 3 changes) the day I change the water I notice there's a NASTY skin on the water.
So does anyone know what could be causing this? I have a theory that I might have used too much water conditioner or something but I can't be sure until tomorrow when I see if a skin has formed or not. (as I put in the regular amount this time instead of the amount suggested for healing fins).
If there's a skin with the reduced amount of wc I'm gonna start testing the tap water and if I don't discover anything then I'm just gonna give up and change his water daily. =/
Could this be ich or some kind of thing associated with sickness? There's nothing white on him and I've never seen white stringy pooh. =[ He's also active and eats well.
I'm just really confused and scared for Genie. =[ Any help or knowledge would be much appreciated! <3
