This morning I woke up and found one of my guppies on the bed of the tank, he’s had problems before but not this severe. All the other this are fine but his tails is ripping.

Should I move him from the tank over to a different tank to give him time to heal so that the other guppies don’t pick on him?

Poor thing. We’ll have eyes on him soon. In the meantime, do you know you water parameters? Can you get a couple of pics of different guppies? They may have early signs showing. Have you tried treating with anything?
@maggie thecat @DoubleDutch can I borrow your eyes here? Please?

More information about your setup would be helpful getting to the root of the problem

But in the cases of fin damage, I have always been advised that calm, pristine water are key to healing.

I hate to say it but he passed away... I came home and he was dead. Here are my other guppies, they’re active and have great appetites.

Here I finally got them tested and the nitrates are up.. is that okay because in the API master test kit it says it’s okay to always be below 40ppm? Ammonia is good and so is Nitrites. It’s juts I don’t know what happened to my guppie that passed away!

Waters ok. Nitrates a bit high but not fin shredding high. Keep an eye on the others. Watch for signs of fin/tail rot or fuzzy looking areas on the others. Keep up with your water changes. Clean water is the best medicine.
