Guppy burned mouth
I got 4 male guppys and had them in quarantine for a week. They ate everything I gave them, colored up nicely and are very active. I put them in my 5 gallon tank last night which already had 2 amano shrimp and 3 nerite snails. They had a couple hours to explore the tank and eat some algae before the lights went out.
This morning one male has protruding, very white lips. He can't seem to open and close his mouth very well. I think he may have been pecking at the heater, trying to get to the light inside. He seems to be able to breathe. I did a water change and added some melafix in hopes of helping him feel better.
I am glad I did the quarantine, made sure he got food into him before this happened. I am hoping his mouth heals up so he can eat.
My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.
