Really Red Gills

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, didn't know what happend over the break something was up with the boards or something , anyway. I got back from the break and my fish have really red gills. I checked the disease page and i couldn't find anything there. The only thing that has changed was i did a 20% water change yesterday and i put a new filter in with new carbon (befor just kept on reuseing old filters, with used up carbon). They don't seem to be flashing so i hope they are ok. I have put some salt in maybe a table spoon or so ( just to ease the water change transition maybe?) and i put some more water conditioner in just incase i didn't put enough in to kill the clorine and what not when i did the water change... If anyone has any further suggestions please shout me a haller ... Cheers

Do you mean the gills are really red inside? They should be a cherry red colour, and look pretty smooth, not ripped up like hamburger.

Yes, when you actually get a really good look at the insides of a fishs' gills they do look really red. They are supposed to be that way though. :)
