first of all I really hate that my first aa post has to be in the unhealthy fish section... at least i think that's where this should go....
i have a 5.5 gallon tank with three dwarf puffers - this morning when i woke up one of them was stuck in the filter intake - it's one of the wisper junior ones that fits entirely inside the tank (it came with the tank), but his back end was just stuck there and I could see him struggling to get out - no telling how long over night he'd been there - so i unplugged everything and gently had to remove him myself.
he's still trying to swim around the tank, but his tailfin in very bloody, and most of it looks internal....
is there anything i can do to help him? his color is horrible and looks like he's in so much pain, grrr and my mother has my qt
tank.... should i worry about keeping him separate from his buddy, i know they can be kinda fiesty with each other...
i know melafix helped when my goldfish broke his dorsal, would it help in this case?
thanks in advance for any advice you may have
i've been browsing this forum for a long time now and with so much great advice to be found i haven't had the need to post anything - you guys have helped me so much already
