| || | Please help Swordtail Dying...
Hey So I added two new swordtails into my 20 gal tank and I checked the search and didnt find what i needed so I'm adding it here. I have a male swordtail and 2 royal blue gourami's and they seem to be doing great and have been together for 2 months now. I added 2 female swordtails cuz I was told the male will harass one and stress her to much if I don't do this so having 2 will offload the stress.
Anyway so One female swordtail has taken to the male awesomely. I havent seen the male this active in forever and they are always together. The other is in bad shape... When we got her she was timid as is but two days ago we checked her and her fins looked chewed. Today I checked her and it almost seems like her whole back fin is gone so I dont know what happened. Is she sick or did the other swordtails attack her? And should I leave her be or is there a way I could help her die or regrow her fin or something?... I hate seeing her suffer as much as she is right now...
