How old is your fish (approximately)? I got her yesterday, and shes small. I don't have a clue, haha.
Basically, I went to a Super Walmart yesterday morning, saw their disease ridden collection of fish, and decided that I wanted to save one. There was a small female who was just too cute to pass up. The problem is, shes missing small amounts of her anal fin, a little part of one of her pelvic fins, a small bit of her pectoral fin, and 95% of her caudal fin. I'm not sure what caused it so I don't know how to treat it. When I got her, the cup was filled with lots of black specs, which sort of looked like ash, and a little bit of algae. She also may have a little black spec on her 'egg spot' (I don't know the technical name). Besides her missing fins, she seems perfectly healthy, is always curious (and hungry!), and loves looking at people. Right now I'm keeping her in a quarantine tank- 1.6 gallons, no gravel, no filter. Just a heater and some decor, plus a cup to hide in. She'll get a water change soon, but she's only been in this water for less than a day.
Ill post pictures if needed, though they aren't very good. Any ideas?
