    I'm a bad pet keeper.

    One of my Julii's disappearred after a gravel cleaning and pwc.
    Unfortunately, I didn't put 2 and together.
    I only discovered him one week later when I loosened the substrate during the next pwc.

    He's alive but not very active today.

    Please, positive prayers for his recovery.:(

    He's much more active today. Thanks for the positive energy!

    His tailfin is in rough shape. But he is able to swim.

    Anybody have an idea how long it takes for a tail fin to grow?

    Aww..glad he is feeling better today. And dont feel bad!! I have lost about 3 juvie guppies now because they somehow get into the net and I dont see them. Needless to say they dried up before I did :(...

    As far as how long it takes. I am not exactly sure. However I do know keeping the water very very clean helps a ton and also prevents infection. So Id do some extra water changes until he is healed. Good luck!!

    I would say a month for it to almost fully grow, clean water is essential.

    I had a serpae terra lose 90% of its tail to an angry gourami. It has been a couple of months and its not 100% regrown yet. It was a high fin type with the big flowy tail.

    Clean water, and a relocation package for Mr. G has helped. The serpae could barely swim after the attack, its about 75% now, and swims well.
