My boy has been very pale this evening.
BB has spent the last 13 days in a QT tank getting AQ salt for fin rot.Everything was going really well,he even made a little bubble nest!
For the last 2 weeks he's been in a 2g tank,heated,aq salt for fin rot,100%water change every day,conditioner is being used and he eats flakes most of the time but once a week blood worms.
Tonight I did his last dose and changed the water/did the routine exactly as I always would have but two hours after the change I noticed he had gone pale.
The only thing that I can think of that was any different to any other night is that I had a few too many blood worms on my finger than I realized and he got to then before I did.
I'm basically a nervous new owner and rushed to write a post but just before posting I checked him again and he was fine, color was good etc.So I went to the normal forum, wrote a post seeing if maybe he was just scared of his reflection etc and when I checked on him again he was bright and happy enough to flare at me.
I checked him again about an hour ago and he had gone pale again and has stayed pale.
I figured that he's had enough salt and have put him back into his aquarium but he hasn't gotten better.He's swimming around normally,coming up to say hello to me etc but his color hasn't returned.
He does look a little full,nothing liked being genuinely bloated but I can tell that he's eaten too much.Is this the first symptom of bloat?
What's wrong with him? Any suggestions on what to do?Did I do the right thing by putting him back into his aquarium?
