swollen lips

Postby cholile » Sat Sep 20, 2008 9:37 pm

For some reason all of a sudden, over the past week, two of my fish (red fin borlei and pheno tanz) lip lock repeatedly right after the lights go out. they both look fine (so far) except the pheno tanz's lips look swollen or enlarged.

so
1. do i have to split them up? (they get along fine throughout the day and once they settle down at night they're fine)
2. is there something i should do for the pheno or will it heal itself?

What size tank is this?

What is the full stock list?

Is it an all male tank?

Most of the time, if it's only injuries directly related to lip locking, the fish will heal on it's own, as long as the water is pristine.

Let's take a look at your stock list and tank size and see if that's the problem.

I can look at your tanks section, but I'd prefer having it right here in the thread. :thumb:

For those who don't have high speed or dsl, it makes reading the thread a bit easier!
