So after having to leave my tank (10G) in the care of my other half two of my ladies passed away leaving Lily and Dori alone, after a water change my tank began to rapidly develop an algae problem and now Dori seems to be pineconing her scales are becoming raised and is puffing up a little..I have placed her in QT.
To deal with the algae problem I purchased 2 Zebra Nerite snails today...and 4 other new ladies =) they are currently floating in their cups in the tank and have been so far for about 15mins, did another water change...Lily is swimming around seems fine in general but I don't know if its because of the water change...but she seems to be "breathing heavily" if that makes sense??
Any suggestions on how to make the transition smooth for all ladies involved?? I want to minimize the stress for all! Lily is larger than some of the newbies!Hoping she won't be too difficult! Wish I could take pictures but the camera I have is rubbish!
