update injured sucker fish
i want to thank everyone for there fast response to my situation. i did go out yesturday imediately to my lps and i got melafix and started him on a treatment. and sorry i never did state what think happened to him so ill tell u now.
about 1 month ago stupid me made a stupid decision and i brought home 2 more fish for my tank so lets see i have a 55 gallon fw and i have 2 silver dollars, 2 ciklids, 1 sucker fish, and 2 new oscars so a total of 7 fish. well after the fish where in the tank i thought to myself i dont think my filter can handle (fluval 305) all these fish so i went back to the lps and bought a marianeland hang on filter for the tank so ifigured more is better then not enough. well that filter that hangs on the back the pickup for it has 2 pieces a top and a bottom and its square. the day i noticed his injury the bottom of the pickup was off of the filter. im guessing because ive seen my sucker fish before when he decides he want to change location he moves and i mean he moves anything and everything out of his way. so i think that he slammed his nose right in t0o that filter and thats how he got injured. its all my fault
one question hes now in a qt tank and i set it up like this. got another 55gallon tank, i took that hangon filter put it on the qt tank, i took about 20 gallons of water out of the original tank. could i be killing him because of the qt tank really wasnt ever cycled?
