Everything was FINE last night at feeding. I watched them both eat, and they were totally great! I even looked at their feet - cuz' they have CUTE FEET!!!
Today was busy, so I haven't had a moment, but when I went in this evening - something is REALLY wrong with Speckles! I've had her since February, and she's been the image of perfection since then. TONIGHT she suddenly has a foot swathed in mold/fungus - it seems to be red, possibly swollen. She's still swimming and moving, but the leg is dragging behind her - like it's dead. She also has a patch of this fungus on her shoulder and her chest.
WHAT IS THIS? How did it become so bad so fast? And WHAT DO I DO NOW?!!!
She's in this tank:
It's a fully cycled, well planted 10g. Her tankmates are a male ADF (Freckles), whom I've had since June and is showing no signs or symptoms (yet) of whatever this is, and a handful of Malaysian Trumpet Snails. They've been in this tank for almost 2 monthsish now, but the plants/wood/rocks came from other tanks. I've seen NO mold/fungus on the driftwood, and haven't made ANY changes in all of this time. Ammonia is 0, Nitrite is 0, Phosphates are 0, Nitrate is 5 - all very stable. Ph is 7.2, Kh 3gtts, Gh 7gtts...
Is the underlying cause of this redleg? Does it move THIS fast?! What can I treat a frog with? Should I move her to QT or treat the tank?!
You can see the awful little flipper in this shot, plus her chest and back:
The patch on her back:
And a gruesome foot shot (sorry) The green you see is riccia - not a part of the problem. . .
PLEASE! Someone tell me what to do!!!
