Sick Silver Shark - Red Fins
Firstly thanks for letting me join your forums.
I have a relatively new fish tank (6 weeks past full cycle) in which i have 3 silver sharks as well as some tiger barbs.
Yesterday one of the silver sharks developed red in their fins. it is not only on the tail but the dorsal fin as well. It looks like "veins" if that makes sense. I can try and take a picture tonight if that helps. The fins kinda look like they are falling apart a little as well.
I have tested the water and all levels are perfect.
I asked the local pet shop, but they had no idea, so i turned to the better resource...the people that know
So any information you guys could give me, would be sensational.
Thanks again in advance
Check your ammonia levels. Probably too high. The level of ammonia need to be zero. Do a 50% water change and add MelaFix to promote healing and restore the slime coat.
Thanks for the quick reply
I did test my levels last night with me "Freshwater Master Test Kit". The markers for reading the levels are 0 and the next one is 0.25. Mine doe snot look exactly like 0 but no where near 0.25
I will retest again tonight
Will the MelaFix hurt if that is not the issue?
Nope. You can also use StressCoat. MelaFix is just an herbal conconction.
i will leave work early and get some
thanks for the help and fingers crossed
