Long story short I receieved 3 gold barbs, 4 longfinned tetras, and a bunch of panda platys off a woman who had a DISGUSTING tank she was breaking down. Everybodys been in quarantine for about a month and Ive noticed 2 things which Id like to bring to everyones attention to maybe get a straight answer.
Ive read EVERY fish disease out there but nothing really fits.
I have a panda platy who has started sitting near the bottom, still has interest in food,- one of my barbs swims with its head down in sort of a 45° angle. So the questions are: why might the barb do this? Its otherwise fine and the other 2 seem perfect, other than a bruise when they might swim into an ornament or each other. AND the platy..... he seems to have a clamped back fin missing most of its webbing and his skin is yellow. YELLOW?! mostly on his head is the yellow, and on his tail. Since receiving the fish the platys pink gills have lightened up CONCIDERABLY and everyone else seems to be doing really well.
Im attatching a picture of each the barb and the male platy.
