Went to feed the fish this morning and noticed Bamboos tail looking tattered. The other fish seem fine. I didn't have much time to see the fish yesterday, but there was no sign of this 2 days ago.



I was thinking it would be best to QT Him with salt? But wasn't sure how much.

I have added 0.1% salt :)

But I just thought of something. Google is my one eyed fish. I'm not sure how good his vision is in his remaining eye, it takes him a while to find food and to realize I'm near the tank (Sometimes he never notices unless I actually put food in, when he had both his eyes he would swim up as soon as I was near the tank) But anyway to my point, sometimes the other fish swim past Google and their tails run across his face, when this happens he tries to nip, I've never seen him actually get them before but he has tried (I'm not sure if he realizes it's another fish and not food hitting him in the face) Most of the time he keeps to himself. Maybe Bamboo 'swished' him and he nipped and got a bit?

Hi guys. I noticed something with Abraham today and decided to post here instead of making a whole new thread.

I will try to get pictures soon but Abraham has had this white/clear spot on his tail for ages now, but this morning I noticed on the inside of his tail it had turned into a lump. I held him and it feels hard and looks like a bubble. Is this anything to worry about?
