Hi everyone, I have a 10 gallon tank with just 2 guppies, a neon tetra and a young platy (nothing aggressive). The other day I noticed something clinging to the side of one of the guppies and immediately thought... omg, what the hell is that. I've never seen anything like this before in any of my prior tanks and couldn't find anything online that fit the description. The guppy looked like its intestines had exploded out of its side right behind its side fin. I tried to get a good picture of it and I'll upload that so u guys can have a look. Oddly enough, the next day there was only a small mark left on the guppy and the entire time I observed it (both day 1 and day 2) the fish was eating and acting normal, breathing normal... etc. Anyway, really hoping to figure out what this was and what to do about it. It kind of scared me a little bit. I always get nervous about putting my hands in the water in case anything could end up in my body lol...
hmmm i haven't tried anything yet... im so confused because i definitely would have expected whatever happened to kill it. i mean it looks like the side of the fish exploded lol but despite that, it seems to be completely normal. if it's a parasite, would i need to put something in the water to get rid of any progeny? i don't want to see it keep happening. i'm also kind of wondering where it came from... i've been using quality fish food and haven't added any plants or anything in a long time. what ratio of salt:water is good to use for a salt dip on a guppy?
