I have a white skirt tetra that is having some issues.
I came home to find him swimming odd and most of the time he struggles to stay upright. He seems to have some strength as he was fighting toe current and filter intake in the tank. Another tetra kept circling around him as well think it knew the other is very ill.
I removed him (he is my fav white skirt as he likes to visit me as I watch the tank
He is in a 1gl (all I have right now for him) and at least in there he is not having to fight a current. I added a 1/2 teaspoon if that of salt (small tank) for him and added a splash of melafix as a last ditch effort. He appears fine and healthy. No bloat, no fungus or other marks on him. I figure I can put him in the 1gl and keep the water very clean for him. I am not to sure he is going to make it.
My 55gl that he came out of.
I right away checked ammonia as today is water change day. It is 0, nitrItes 0, NitrAtes 20, PH 7 and everyone else in the tank seems fine
