| || | Nurse tank environment - help
I have a peacock that got worked over by some mbunas - I think... they looked really suspicious. There are other peacocks in the tank. Any suggestions about a nurse tank set up? I've got him alone in a smaller tank and I'd like to attempt to nurse him back to health.
- lifted scales
- "bloody" looking in some traumatized areas
- shallow breathing
- swim bladder damaged?? - - - swimming on his side
He's about 4-5 inches... a "pink" variety. He's albino (pale eyes) with a creamsicle colouring. I don't really expect him to live, but I thought I'd give it a shot.
ps. I named him Rue McClanahan... even though he's male.
