Help Please (pics)
There's something wrong with this fish. Another fish I had of this type, long fin rosy barb, had the same thing happening to him and he died. He was rather young. This one is less than a year old, female.
Does anyone recognize this issue? Perfect tank PH, btw, for these fish.
Thank you, I'll research that. The fins are also looking shabby and another female in the tank looks like she's dying of starvation. I feed them twice a day, more than enough. I'm wondering if there is a parasite or something that might be the cause...perhaps the bleeding is a secondary symptom caused by weakened imune system? Can Ich do this?
If you look at the fins, some parts appear whiter and flaky. Anyway, I put Ich remover into the tank to be sure. A few teaspoons of salt. Removed the filters, etc. It's a 30 gallon, freshwater tank.
I've searched and searched for information on "anal prolapse" and the closest I've gotten was a site that answered a question about "rectal prolapse" and the response was that fish do not have a "rectal" to prolapse. :?:
have you checked the ammonia level and the ph level? u should make sure that they are normal
is it just me or did your fish seem to have red around the gills idk maybe its just the picture but i just want to make sure. What ever it is it could be contagious (sp?) have you isolated the fish?
