Aubreew said:I'm not sure as I've never had this happen, but I believe she should be quarantined and treated. I would maybe add just the tiniest sprinkle of Epsom salt (for pain/discomfort) to the quarantine tank, and maybe Melafix? It treats abrasions and such so it should help with healing. But don't treat her with other fish that don't need it, quarantine, just be gentle. When taking her out, don't use a net! Use a cup or bowl as not to irritate her scales further.
She doesn't look so hot, I hope she gets better! Maybe change out your filter for a sponge filter to prevent it from happening again.
Ive got a breeder box yea and some other stuff which one should i useSeasoldier said:Hi, if I were you I'd move the fish out from behind the filter & heater or it will probably damage itself more, do you have any way of keeping it away from those, something like a breeding net? If it's injured itself all you can do is keep it under observation & make sure your water is pristine clean & hope it will heal, you could add something like Stress coat or something similar to your water to help it recover.
