Yeah, i figured leaving them in the same tank was the best idea, thats what i was leaning towards. I have also never dealt with a fish with injuries so i wasn't sure what to do with him. I am currently cycling two tanks, the 10 gallon and the 20 high. My signature is actually way out of date. The 10 is now housing the 5 barbs until i get the 20 set up, then ultimately the 55. the 20 is being cycled so i can move the barbs over. The 55 is going to be taken down and redone completely. same with the 20 long. If i keep the water conditions good (once it finishes cycling) his tail will heal completely with no other aid?
I've kept barbs in the past, there activer personalities is one of the things that draw me to them. They will definitely move to the bigger tank as soon as it is properly set up. I figured as much on the tank. Since the 10 seems to be on the downside of cycling i will let it finish up and keep them there till the 20 is running smoothly.
I put the little barb in the breeder for now, will this be okay? I'm trying to seperate him so he doesnt get any worse injuries. THis way i can care for him seperately without moving him to a new tank. Hopefully he will heal up. there arent any chances of fin rot coming from this?
