    I'm so glad Hermes is doing great. You did a good job with him. :)

    And we have 2 for loaches and 1 for cichlids. Hahaha! Thanks, Maisy. XD

    My goldfish are doing great. :)
    They are very active and they are so smart. Pacer will tap the glass temp thing against the tank when I sleep too long and he wants food. lol

    Live plants wouldn't help immediately. It's more like a long-term thing, and something to consider in the future.

    Actually, I kind of do. My old guppy had horrible fin rot, but I couldn't help him before it was too late. I believe Bettababy (she's one of my friends on here...ask her) said 1tsp of AQ salt in a floated container w/ 100% daily waterchanges, though I'm not certain. I'd suggest asking her before doing anything else :) Good luck!

    I'm sorry it took me so long to reply. Vet appointment for my furry friends. Anubias is a good low-light plant. Java fern is also good. Hornwort is good if you can find it. Anarcharis sometimes but it's at least worth a try. These will also give your guppies some shelter to hide from each other. Being behind on the water change is probably what caused the rot to happen. I recently had something like that happen to my goldfish tank. 10 days without a water change gave my veiltail some massive rot. If worst comes to worst, you could try to find a large breeder box and give the nipper a time-out. Good luck getting your guppies all healed!

    I'm not sure about adding salt because I don't know how salt-tolerant rasbora are. Basically treating fin-rot is the same all around. Clean water is going to be your first defense. Try adding an extra water change and some live plants. The other problem I'm seeing is that rasbora can be kinda nippy. If you keep them in groups of 6 or more this will get better. I think if you address the cause of the fin-nipping and keep the water clean you should be good. Hope your little guy gets better!

    Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
