Healing my female badis
Hi fish experts!
I have a relatively new planted tank (~3 months) and purchased a male and female Dario dario along with a few other small tetras. My female has been sick for a few weeks. She started acting sluggish for the first week. I noticed that she was porcupined into the second week, appearing slightly bloated, and I thought that maybe she had dropsy. Her back fin is tucked into a point instead of a flare and she hides under plants often. After this observation, I noticed that a few other fish (guppies) in my tank seemed to be itchy, so I gave two 1/2 treatments of Jungle Ick Guard with small water changes over the course of 48 hours because I have all small tetras in my tank. My female badis appeared to feel better after this treatment, but still hasn't fully recovered. Though she is being more adventurous now, she is still porcupined. She never seemed to be itchy though like the other ones. Does anyone know what I can do and/or what my badis is suffering from?
