When I left the house at 10AM, my beloved Fishy was all good to go.
...Around 8PM my mother calls me and tells me there's a 'slice' in Fishy's tail. I thought it was probably a minor cut that split his tail into two, so I told her it'd be okay and I'll check it out when I get home.
Right now it is 7:15AM, and I'm shocked with what I see.
First, the pictures:
[Sleeping] Fishy (Now):
I am so shocked and confused and worried. What the heck happened to the middle portion of Fishy's tail? He's a delta with fins that like to get a bit ruined now and then, but I've never seen anything like this
It doesn't even seem like he bit it...
With the picture of the aquarium in its whole, could anyone surmise what could have happened in my absence? Supposedly Fishy is still acting the same according to my mother: happy, active, perky, hungry, etc. He's still sleeping as of now so I'll have to wait and see if that's true.
- 81 degrees
- currently undergoing AQ salt treatment; today is the 8th day and I plan to stop at the 10th. Will throw out all the water in the 10gall and replace. New carbon filter too.
Something different was this:
That's not a bubble nest, I'm sure. I think those bubbles came from the little stack of yellow boba straw which I used along with a tape and rubber band to slightly hinder the filter's flow a bit more. This is the only thing which I can point out as different. I put this in about 1-2 days ago?
Thank you so much for any help!
