Location: I live in Florida. Gotta love the beach!
Ahhh! Parasites! I think.
First of all, I added some salt to my lil' tank while trying to heal a fish, so I guess I post here now. I have 3 male guppies. I vaccumed my gravel a couple weeks ago. It was the first time I had done this, and I had to do it very thoroughly. I'm new at this, so I don't really know much about it. One of my fish that I bought at Walmart (the only one from there) had a special case. He suddenly got fatter. All he does all day is swim at the top of the tank waiting for his next meal. His.... well.... his anis is kind of sticking out. Sorry, I don't really know how else to put it. He has a small, red, hair-like thing hanging out of it. At first, I thought it was just part of him, and then I did some research. It turns out it's not natural. I'm not sure what exactly it is. All I can tell you is that it is small, thin, short, and red. What cures are there? About how much do they cost? What should I buy?
