| || | 911! Split tail on my fancy guppy!
Ten gallon hex fully cycled on 6/4/2010. Added 5 harlequin rasboras and 1 Olive Nerite snail on 6/15/2010. Waited until 7/2/2010 and added 3 fancy guppies (all males). 1 Japanese Blue Swordtail, 1 Tequila Sunrise and 1 Green Cobra. Yesterday I noticed the Green Cobras tail was split!!! I don't think it's fin rot all my readings are normal! 0 Nitrate, 0 Nitrite, I can't remember the other readings off hand. Temp is 78 F. Could it be from the airstone? I have bubbles coming out of a treasure chest?They seem to love playing in the bubbles.....
Or could it be the fake plants? They don't feel rough to me but I know their tails are quite delicate? Or do you think the males may be fighting? I haven't seen any aggression between them at all though.....Any suggestions???
