Hey! I have a medium planted 25 gallon tank with one and six rasbora: 5 Harleyquinn and 1 pork-chop. Two of my hqs are white and kinda lethargic. They look like they are peeling. One has a bitten tail. I have seen the pork chop bullying at one of them. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM and WHAT SHOULD I DO? Should I separate? I have a breeding box that I could put them in. Also, I am going to add another 3 of them. Should I qt the 3 all alone?

I wouldn't get any new fish until you figure out what's the problem. What are your parameters as well as any new fish added recently? If the bully is the one that is doing the damage to this fish you can see about getting rid of the bully.

To help the healing process I would do more water changes. Clean, pristine water = better healing and health.

Thank you. I have not added fish in ~2 months. They were the last group in. They lived in the store’s display tank (it was only them and shrimp in a 15 cube on the front desk). I have a 7.6 ph and no ammonia or ni. I will also check nitrate, but I didn’t want to wait another 5 minutes AND wash the tubes again. I will try to get them ASAP. Do you have any idea what is wrong with the scales? Should I separate him?
