    Question helpppp

    whats happened to my coral beauty?
    3 days ago his back tail looked a little bit shredded . Like if someone took the sissors to it and gave it a few snips. Then a day after he was perfect as if it healed over night. Now 2 days later all of his fins are lie it and he look in rough shape. I have a lobster also and it looks as if he got ahold of his while he was sleeping or something. Probly not it. But all my levels are fine and no other fish seem affected. I have had him for around 4 months now and te tank is close to two years old????

    hhhmmmm, sounds like he's getting picked on for sure! Could be the lobster, is he new? Anything else new to the tank?
    :fish3:Piatchie:fish3:

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    If your nitrate and for that matter other peramiters are too high it is time to do some water changes. Poor water conditions can affect the fins and slime coatings on fish by ""chemicilly burning" these sensative tissues. Poor water conditions will also lenghten recovery times when damage has occured.
