Guppy Problem
 
Hello, Today i looked in my guppy tank and realized my male's tail has been split open. I was just wondering how that couldve happened and will it heal?

Depending on other fish, it could've been nipped. And how far down does the split go?

bmister360 11-29-2009 09:21 PM

the split goes straight to the body its pretty big

Oh. Just watch it for fungi and other illness, but im pretty sure he should be ok. :S (Correct me if i'm wrong.)

I think it should be OK I have had that happen before too. It will heal back.

Welcome to the forum!! Just make sure you keep up with water changes and it should heal fine without getting any fungus.
