Hi guys my names micky n I'm from co . Durham in the north east of England. Iv had fish for 18 months or so and iv learnt so much in that time but understand there is so much more to learn!
Well now that iv introduced myself I might as well tell you my problem

Iv got a 130 litre freshwater tank that's bin up n running for around 15 months now and iv got a plec that's approx 2 years old that we'v had for 8 months or so and all has been fine until yesterday! I notices he had holes and tears on 1 of his small fins that I'd never noticed befor so I tested the water and found no problems at all with the condition of it (no ammonia no nitrite 5-10 nitrate and a ph of 6.5 - 7 and it seams to of been settled at these levels 4 a while now) so I put a dose of fin rot medicine in last nyt.

Has anybody else had this sort of problem before and is it fin rot or possibly something else? I do have 4 black widow tetras that r a little nippy but I can't imagine they'd bother with someting much bigger like a plec, would they?

Anyway thanks for lookin
