I am in need of some input / help.
I have a banded bamboo shark 4 months old, hatched in my aquarium. Healthy specimen, all tank specs are good: Salinity 1.0235, 0 Ammo, 0 Nitrite, about 30 Nitrate, ph 8.4 and GH
are perfect. He has had no problems until today.
Just after a water change he and his tank mate, a mature one spot foxface were in a cave together. The foxface has been showing aggression over the last 2 weeks. It appears that the shark has been stunned by the spikes of the foxface. The foxface raised his spikes and backed into the shark.
The shark's breathing is very rapid. No other changes apparent. He is swimming, more than usual actually. I have observed him for over 6 hours with no sign of change. He will not eat, but I don't blame him... I am concerned about his welfare. What do I do??? Do I need to help him or is it just temporary??? Will he be alright?? HELP
