I am a new member here hoping to learn how to provide better care for my lovey little Berta buddies.
Two days ago I noticed two white dots on my halfmoon 'Bird' so I immediately removed him from the tank and took him to petsmart and had my water tested and him diagnosed as I suspected they said he had ick. So they suggested a water change salt and melefix she said not to give any medicine unless it gets worse...
The next morning I wake up to see that my Guy is just fine :) ick free! So I call the same petsmart employee tell her the good news and ask if I need to sterilize his hospital tank and if he can go back in the big tank with his neighbors. She told me to keep him separate another day to help gain strength..
Sooooo I wake up the next morning (today) and his beautiful tail is ripped in half! :'(
All the way to his body! It doesn't have any black or red edges. But its ripped all the way to his body. Help! Will this grow back?? He's still his happy alert hungry nosey self. I've removed all rocks and plants from his tank and he's in 84 degree spring water with a outlet aquarium salt and melafix
Unfortunately my only available internet is on my phone and it wouldn't allowed to attach a picture of the ripped tail but Bird is the deep blue Berta as my profile picture also if u ho to my albums I'm putting a picture of the rip in there
I'm so concerned because its ripped all the way to his body like he has two tails
Will they re attach??? Is he in pain? (He doesn't seem to be ) does he need medicine? Please help I love my little Birdy and just want him to be ok :'(
