my fish's tail is gone!!
Yesterday I noticed that my catfish's tail was half gone! It's not tail rot, as that starts at the end, and it jagged. I have no idea what it is.
first, the botton half of his tail was gone, now today, there's about 1/10 of it left on the top. It's not disappearing from the end up, but rather from the whole bottom of it, and up. He's almost got a hole on his body, where his tail used to be attached.
I treated the aquarium with Jungle fungus eliminator, but I have no idea if it's a fungus, or what on earth it is. he's still alive, though struggles to swim, but being a catfish, he lays on the bottom most of the time anyways.
I'm panicking, as I've had him for over a year.
Does anyone have a clue as to what this could be, or what else I should be doing to get rid of it?? will his tail grow back???
thanks so much.
