Hi, I went to the pet store to buy a siphon for my 10 g tank w/ 4 gorgeous males ( all separated of course). When I saw 3 fishies that looked so sad and depressed and sick in those tiny cups, a female with some cotton on the top of her head, more like a strand rather than a clump, but still there. A male with a bloated belly that cant keep straight, when he tries to rest he goes sideways and has trouble swimming, but very active, and another male that is pale as can be, with black on the tips of his fins, not sure if its fin rot of not, doesnt look like its eating away at him. and Last but not least a tiny and I do mean a tiny crowntail, who seems to have white velvetty/cotton looking things on top of his eyes, has a bloated tummy, and most likely fin rot... so as you can see I really need some back up knowing how to save them please.
I started the CT on Maracyn-2 and aq salt. same for the female w/ the cotton, and the pale male that has the black tips on his fins. I hope this helps them. I have the bloated male that has trouble swimming in clean water with AQ salt, I have no idea how to make him better, please I really need help with him.
I have two pictures, one is of the tiny CT and the other is of the male that has trouble staying straigh, he is resting against the container so he isnt too sideways, but please help.
They are each in a small container (Tupperware) with about a half teaspoon of AQ salt, some withe the Myracin2 and the other is just w the AQ salt. The female ate 2 pellets earlier and 2 right now, the pale male also ate about 2 pellets all together, the male thats bloated did not eat, and the CT did not eat either.
Their water temp is about 70 -72 degrees, buts i don't have 4 heaters, nor tanks to put them in so I cant make it any higher :( the water was just changed since I got them today, and they have plastic easter eggs to hide in, the type that have two halves so they wont get stuck anywhere.
