On deaths door!
Iv had an issue with white spot for the past 2 weeks, it started with just my betta having it, i treated the tank and all seemed well, then 2 days later the rest of the tank got it, iv followed the instructions to the letter for treatment but it was a very bad case and its only just showing signs of curing, except 1 green neon tetra, who looks in a terrible state, his body looks badly damaged hes breathing very fast, he can hardly swim, and has even gone to the waters surface and is trying to avoid every other fish. is he about to die, and if so should i leave him to die or remove him and humainly end his torture
What size is your tank? What is the temperature set at now? What treatment did you use? What fish are in your tank? What are the water parameters?
Even though clown pleco are one of the smaller plecos only growing to about 6" they produce an enormous amount of waste and shouldn't be in a tank of that size. I would look at returning it or finding a new home for it. Plecos in general will also eat small fish like your neons if given a chance to.
Assuming your profile pic is your tank, are those live plants in there? If not I would looks into replacing them with live plants and getting some floating plants. This will reduce stress on your fish therefore helping to prevent ich from taking hold in the furture.
thanks, i was miss sold the pleco but havent found him a better home, they are live plants, and i do want some floating ones but all my local store dont seem to have any, on the note of the tera that is showing signs of dying should i remove it at all? and if so should i humainly end its suffering?
What are your ammonia and nitrIte levels? If this is a new tank, then you need to change half your water right now as your fish is being poisoned by ammonia or nitrItes. You have an awful lot of fish for a 15 gallon tank.
my levels are zero for everything, and i test this weekly.
thanks for all replys, the fish in question has now died, i looked into it and it was humainly killed and then disposed of.
im now going to take other actions to calm my tank and cure the white spot. iv seen alternative medications that im going to try
