Hi...I have had my fw
tank up for about 3 years. I have 2 silver dollars and one pleco. The tank is 29gl.
Well...I did something really stupid. I 'assumed' that the distilled water I started using a few months back had the appropriate perameters, but realized 'too' late that the ph
was only a 5.5!!!!! Couldn't figure out why I was losing fish and idiot that I am, never thought to check ph
...I checked EVERYTHING but...
Anyway, I have been medicating the tank because of tail/fin rot which I believe is a result of the stress of the 'acid' water making their immune system a perfect target for illness.
ffwd...the tails and fins are back...fish are looking healthy..the ONLY thing that hasn't changed on one of the silver dollars is the gills...the gills are still gone...exposing red flesh...
My question is this...will the gills regenerate as the fins and tails have?
What treatments should I use to accomplish this?
The water now tests fine, and as I said, everyone is healing.
, I have a 72gl salt water tank and have been in the 'fish' hobby for about 20 years or more...but sick fish are something I honestly almost never encounter.
Thanks for reading!
