I didn't see anything wrong with her physically. As far as it being an acclimation problem, that would show up three days after being introduced to this tank? The one that I picked up first died, not the one with fin rot I brought home yesterday.

You didn't get a big swing in temperature?

No, it stayed consistent.

Not any thing you did. We just don't know the history of these fish, which can make it hard.

Yeah, I'll try to get some pics of the fin rot girl up in an hour or so.

Here are some photos of my girl. I hate to say it, but it looks like her fin is receding further. /:

















The final few photos are to show the gill cover that seems to be curling? It's transparent. Both sides are doing it but the left side is much easier to see.

We can save that, really not as bad as I expected, more concerned with the damaged Pertoral fin than the Caudal. Get together some hydrogen peroxide, iodine, triple antibiotic cream and some cotton swabs. Rest her today. swab her tomorrow.

She doesn't have a damaged pectoral?

Didn't see a left side pectoral but that's good

It's just how she was swimming. Any idea on her curled gill plates and why her tail is receding?
