I agree here I wouldn't let her suffer also with small tanks its hard to keep your ph ammonia nitrates and nitrites at a safe level and when over stocked its even harder I upgraded to a 30 so I wasn't doing water changes everyday u rlly need a test kit

Thanks for backing me better it is really hard for OPs to understand that sometimes I fish just will not live and you have to stop the suffering

Because you have to test your water weekly for you to have a successful breeding program sometimes even more than weekly I know because I will be starting my breeding program in the next moth or so and, water quality is A MUST with fry
Yes, and I know. If this fish dies, I'll use the pity note on my parents to get one. If not, I'll find another way. And my breeding might have to hold off until the summer. Good luck to you, by the way.

Okay, thanks. I'll keep watching. Hope it doesn't come to that, though. She looks bad now, though. She might die on her own before tomorrow.

I really doubt the water has ammonia In it you should take it to get tested next time. Also if you have males and females in the tank they will breed like crazy

Yeah. Like I said, breeding will probably wait until summer.

Clearing things up:


I have a master test kit picked out on amazon. After school, I will bug my dad to get me one. It is 18$ or so on amazon last time I checked. I will euthanize the fish tomorrow probably, and am holding off on breeding until next summer.

One more question: will this disease spread?
