As some of you may know, I brought home a new baby, Lily, from Petco about a month ago. At first she was very weak and sick, but since I started feeding her brine shrimp and given her a proper tank, she has perked up.
This after noon, I came home and I found Lily with stress stripes and fungus on her left gill. It's gray and fuzzy. She is usually very lively but today she is just lying next to her flower pot, and she won't move even when I moved the tank a little.
For a few weeks I kept her in my guppy tank, until the fry chewed off her tail (it's not infected- it's growing back). I put her in a breeding net where she got her dark coloring back and appeared happy. 3 days ago I bought her her own tank (2 gallons and a heater. Plenty of plants, sand and flower pots from previous tanks). Could the move have any thing to do with this new illness? It's the exact same water. Should I add in Aquarium salt? I have some on hand.
*Fungus on gill
*2 gallon tank
*Shrine shrimp, blood worms, occasionally crushed "betta flakes"
* Plenty of plants, as well as 2 flower pots and sand as substrate
-She came from the guppy tank, where her tail was eaten by fry, but it's healing back. She was in a breeding net until three days ago, when I moved her into her new tank.
