so i just realized i probably did not give enough information for anyone to really be able to help so i will add it now:
Tank: 46g Freshwater
Tank is kept at 78-82F
Filtered with Fluval 305 w/ surface skimmer addon, media baskets only have physical and biological filtration media (ceramic cylinder things and foam)
No additional equipment other than heater and filter for tank.
Water not been tested recently, just overhauled so old parameters do not apply anymore.
Been set up for >2yrs
The other tankmates are 2 Bolivian rams, 2 other Black Skirts, 6 pristella tetras, MTS. Most inhabitants been in tank for over 2 years, Bolivian rams have been in for 2 months. Almost all adult sized now.
The sick fish is not in quarantine, tiny container like the ones they use in petstores to transfer fish. Water for it is changed daily with tank water.
Tank recieves very diffused sunlight during daylight hours from shaded window ~120ft away. Tank lights 6000k and rosette HO T5 bulbs, on for 8 hrs a day.
Water is changed ~once every week or 2 weeks, ~10% with gravel vac.
Food is tetra flakes once a day in the morning with occasional treats like freezedry brine shrimp, frozen bloodworm.
Fish has not exhibited any unusual behaviors.
Fish has not been treated for anything.
If anyone can help, please do. This fish has been with me for over 4 years now.
