My blue male veiltail, Azure normally has long, flowing fins and tail. In the last 2 days, I've noticed they look frayed. My son noticed that they've shortened, as well. Upon closer inspection, he's right. Azure has lost at least a quarter of an inch of length. He isn't quite as aggressive at feeding time, either, and he's seeming just a bit tired. He lives in a 10 gallon decorated tank with one large live bamboo, and 2 algae eaters, each less than an inch long. I've never seen any aggression from them. I was going to leave him solo after the ADF debacle, but we kept having a huge algae issue, which the little guys resolved. The tank water is clear and 80 degrees. I never change water, just add tap water treated with Stress Coat when needed. I'll get the water tested today. Any ideas? If this is finrot, how do I treat him in his current environment? I've read ten different methods. This is the only site I trust. Thanks a bunch.
