fin rot or fin nipping
a week ago i purchased 5 tiger barbs (and a pleco) to be added to my 29 gal with my two swordtails. monday morning one was dead. its tail was kind of ragged looking, but it was stuck to the filter intake, so i assumed that had something to do with it. of the remaining four, three are starting to have ragged tails and are not very active. the other one is still active and looks fine.
what should i look for to determine if it is fin rot or if the one that doesn't seem affected is bullying everyone else?
0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 2 nitrate (as of friday) pH 7.8, temp 78-79 F. moderately planted, a few rock decorations.
