Exclamation Bleeding fish?!?!

This morning I woke up and saw that Bellino had red on the edge of his fins. It looks like he dipped the very tip into red paint. It is on his dorsal fin, which he also appears to have taken a few bites out of.

Do you think he is tailbiting because I moved him into a smaller tank? If necessary I will just tell my mom that he NEEDS his space :)

Ugh now I feel so guilty for downgrading him!


Is there a safe way to do dividers without aquarium glue? I want to put him back in his 10 gallon and maybe Chiquito also if he can handle it.

I moved Polo out of his 5g and into a smaller critter keeper for a few days while I address the brown algae and he went off the deep end chewing up all his fins and throwing a fish hissy fit. He does not like being in anything but his large tank and he will let you know it so most likely you are experiencing a similar issue as mine.

Cleos finrot started that way, the tips of his fins looked bright red.

What do I do? Do you think this is happening because I downgraded him?


HELP!

Blood disappears fast. i think it is finrot. The best cure is clean water and AQ salt.

I'd check the parameters and see if they're off. If they're off, fix 'em. If they're ok, PM OFL and ask her what she thinks might be helpful.

I'm thinking an epsom salt treatment and some decaffinated green tea for tannins, to calm Bellino and his fins down, but that's only an educated guess on my part...
