Pic attached...

Fish is new to tank 3 days ago. Apparently the boy I thought I bought was a pregnant girl and she gave birth the first night! My rainbow is attacking her like crazy. Luckily I separated her the first night and she gave birth in a vase :/ but now I added her back since she was going after her babies but the rainbow is still after her. Not sure if it’s an injury or infection. Also she’s in the breeding box I bought for the babies but using it for her til I know what’s up.

Looks like a little injury. Do daily 75% water changes and one teaspoon of aquarium salt (if the vase is about a gallon). Otherwise, 1/2 tsp.

Thank you! Glad to hear it’s just injury and not a new disease or infection to combat

I have her in the breeding box until I set up new tank tomorrow. I will then add her and a couple others from main tank.

Update she’s not moving the fin and is moving very little. I thought she was dead but she does move her tail and other fin a bit. Also it looks puffy in that area around the fin.

Are you treating her with the water changes and aquarium salt?

Yes but sadly she didn’t make it. I have the breeding box in the new tank. I’ll let that establish before I move other fish in.

I’m so sorry for your late st. She may have had internal damage. :(
