Neon with blob on it's lip.
Hello all, first post for me here :)
One of my neons have gotten a blob on his lip. It looks like its really swollen. None of the others have it and he sticks to the others as usual. Does anyone know what this could be?
Info about tank:
I have a 50 gallon tank with freshwater. Been setup for about 1,5-2 months. In it I have a small number of neons, 10 of them, 2 ancistrus, 3 shrimp and 3 botia. There are quite a number of plants in there too, all growing very well. The temperature varies between 78-84, a bit warm, but the fish seem to be quite happy in there. The filters/pumps are one standard Jewel that comes with the tank, quite weak, and the other is a Aquael with both normal filter and "bio-rocks" in it. I have fluid co2 that i use everyday for the plants. The tank gets no direct sunlight at all. I exchange water every other week, about 30% and then add something called Aquasafe that makes tapwater suitable for fishtanks. It says on the bottle that it neutralizes aggressive chlorine and heavy metals. I feed every morning with microgranules that are good for the tetras and every third day i exchange the tetra-food with bloodworms. I have two tubes with white light that are on about 8 hrs a day.
