6 Neon tetras, 5 months
1 Amano shrimp, 3 months
A bunch of snails
Fed once daily, pinch of fish flake food
The cats drink out of it, because they like flavored water apparently.
What symptoms are being exhibited and when did they start: I noticed a couple of days ago that one of the neon tetras in the tank appeared to be covered in mucus bubbles. I think another fish has some smaller bubbles on him as well. The fish's behavior seems surprisingly normal, but it's definitely got something going on.
