Need a wheelchair... Parapelegic guppy :(
I think one of my guppies has a spine injury.
I'm about to euthanize it because it's obviously in pain, but wanted to make sure it's nothing contagious.
It doesn't look like swim bladder disorder- her head is pointed down, and her front fins, mouth, and gills are moving frantically, but her tail is curved and not moving at all. Sometimes she twists her front half, which lifts her off the substrate, but she eventually sinks again head-down.
I already posted her in the memorial forum...
I don't think its anything contagious. I do think you should just euthanize it as I don't think it has any chance of survival. :( The best method I know of is to get water freezing cold (put some ice in some water and allow it to get really cold) and drop the fish in. She should die in about 2 seconds. If anyone knows a better method, or if this isn't as humane as I think, feel free to chew me out.
Diseases aren't my thing but don't fish curve like that with dropsey? Possible TB as well? Just throwing ideas out there.
dropsy I think they just swell up... As far as TB, god I hope not.
