Hi all, so I’m a beginner fish keeper and not too sure what to do.
So I got a new set up around 3 months ago, I got a black Moore, a comet and 2 suckling loaches. I have a 30 litre tank (currently waiting to get my next decent pay day to upgrade) literally just after I bought them all, about a day or two after my friend surprised me with 2 platies and 5 mountain minnows. I didn’t have the heart to tell her I needed a bigger tank, and I didn’t have the money to upgrade at that time so I just had to pop them in. I know the tank isn’t acceptable for them all but I’m working on it.
However for the past few months my fish have been happy and thriving but after I replaced old decor and added some new decor during a thorough water change which I was told to do by pet store advisors and also various people on other pages, I acclimated my fish all was fine but I noticed poor old Goku (the black moore) just dropped to the bottom, all fins tucked in. At first I thought it was just clamp fin, after a few hours I noticed white spot, I planned on asking for help in my local pet store the next day. But due to unforeseen circumstances I couldn’t make it and a day or two later I noticed fin rot, but the white spots had disappeared, So literally everything happened very fast.
I ran to the store and bought interpret fungus and fin rot treatment but after adding that into my tank, about 1 hour or so later he had extremely long very fine poo stuck to him. I’m kinda just losing hope for my poor baby at the moment but I’m doing everything I can. I don’t get paid until Friday so I’m just hoping he can hang on until then.
Can anyone give me advice on how to make him well again? I miss his sassy personality and his cute big fins.
Ps, he’s only about an inch to 2 inches in size.
