i am the proud new owner of some gorgeous longfin marble bristlenose They are my pride and joy
I have just noticed today (friday, purchased wed pm) that most of them have some red 'blood stain' looks on their fins. Only the pectoral fins seem affected.
There is no actual bleeding, just redness.
Looking at photos from day one, still in their bag, they didnt seem to have this???
I have heard the reddening may come from ammonia, but i have tested my tank twice today and its definitely 0.
Could it be my ph? Maybe too much higher than they are used to?
What can i do about this, apart from my usual weekend waterchange (approx 15%)
I never used to test my water all these years and have bred many fish successfully. So i dont know if this is ok for bn (admits ignorance)... i know they'd prefer 6.8-7 but my other bn (common and lfabn) have always been happy and healthy in this actual tank.
I definitely want these guys happy and healthy, so suggestions please!!!
