ghost catfish injured?
idk what happened to him but i looked at my tank about 10 min ago and found my ghost cat fish, swimming around with his body kind of zig-zaged. not completly curled up but looks like he got rammed into or something. anything i can do to help the poor little guy?
I assume its a glass catfish, mine are the first to get funky looking if my parameters go to hell. I would test your water personally, he could just be sickly :( I just lost one to a nitrate spike!
i had just done a 50% water change. so maybe he didn't like it?
its possible. Maybe do more frequent smaller water changes to lessen the impact?
My cats are very easy to stress. The last one (nitrate spike) was looking a little sickly and had what I think was a bacterial infection lesion on its face. It looked injured, but im almost 99% it was an infection. Within an hour it was banging off things and another hour we were laying the poor feller to rest.
yes i think that is a better idea. thank you. i feel so bad for the little guy. he didn't make it sadly :( but the other 4 are fine. that is what confuses me. wouldn't all 5 of them or atleast most of them show the same simptums?
when I lost mine, the other 4 didnt bat an eyelash!
