They certainly look bigger.. Turbo's eyes were pretty intense today when he was staring at me after I put him in the little tank.. He's still angry.. The salt wasn't working out with him, so I'm really hoping that just clean water and a smaller tank, for now, will help him out.. I feel so bad for him and his little fins. :( The girl (Now, I have to get used to calling her by her name instead of "female fish" or "girl fish". Lol.) is darting around her tank, all cute-like.. And he's just kind of swimming around and taking his time. Lol. Poor guy. He tries to get out for a while. Then, he rests. Then, he tries again.. =[ I feel pretty guilty about putting him in the little container.

Just keep telling yourself it's for his own good, it's for his own good. One thing you could try is to get 8 cup Gladwares at the grocery store. Because they have a frosted bottom, he can't see the tank outside and he might be calmer. But the downside is the small size means changing it twice a day. They float quite well, though.

I don't think I could do the twice-a-day water change, honestly. =[ I have so much going on. He's been in the little mini tank for a while now... He absolutely refused to be in any salt... I've been doing 100% water changes daily.. But his fins don't seem to be getting any better. :( They're not getting any worse, on the positive side.. Maybe, they're getting better so slowly that I can't tell, especially because there's no salt.. I don't know. But it's so sad. =(

:( Turbo, Turbo, you shouldn't make so much work for Comet.

One way to make small-tank water changes go faster is to premix the water and conditioner in a big gallon jug. Then you just dump the water out and pour.

Does he have big blackened edges still or is it possibly still tailbiting?

You're lucky your turtle didn't make a meal of your fishies. It happened to a friend of mine. And hurray for new tanks!

I figured that out; that's how I do my water changes now, since I'm usually pressed for time. =] I'm not sure.. His fins look ragged.. Like, someone took scissors and clipped them to make frills and accidentally made a few little tiny triangles.. Like.... ||||||\/\\\\\|||||| Yeah, I realize that's not the best description... But I'll try to get some pictures. Not sure how well it will work. :( My computer's been having some major issues.

I'm pretty sure he's been tailbiting. If he had fin rot, the edges would be blackened and he would have lost huge chunks of fin at a time.

They still look kind of shredded, though. The anal and dorsal fins are affected, too. :( I don't know how he could have gotten to them.. They just look kind of like.. Peeling a little bit of cheese of of those string cheese sticks.. Sorry; best thing I could think of. Yes, I'm hungry. Lol. And his pectoral fins look marbled, I guess. That's what I always thought it was.. I doubt that they have fin rot. If they can get it. Lol.
