Red Veins In Tail

Recommended Posts

Ok Whitie has a few red veins in his tail. I'm not sure if they were always there, or if it's something bad! It's not bloody looking, it just looks like veins. He is not acting sick. He's a white ryukin. Do you think it's just veins I am seeing, you have to be right up close to even see them, they are so fine.

He was in a 10 gallon, ammonia 0, nitrite, 0, nitrate under 5. Filtration, aqua clear 150. No additives except cycle once a week. I did water chages about every 4 or 5 days because he's a good sized fish. Food: Hikari pellets, soaked in tank water before feeding, and peas a couple of times a week.

He's in the new tank now. So everything is at 0 still. He is acting perfectly normal if that helps any.

Am I worried over nothing?

Thanks

Jessica

Considering your parameters are fine, I'd expect it's nothing to worry about. My red cap oranda has a few noticable veins in his tail fin, but I'm pretty sure it's just because they're white, and the veins just show through easier. I think I've read that in a post on here before. I wouldn't worry about it though, unless the veins become more pronounced.

I agree with the others. If he is acting well, eating well and not clamping his fins, you are probably just seeing the natural veins in his tail.

I'm sorry you lost your fish.

Red veins can be from stress.

They can be from a lack of oxygen.

They can be from disease/parasites/bacteria.

They can be from poor water quality.

I posted this post over a year ago, so I've learned a lot since then.

Whitie was moved from the 10 gal 2 days before this post when I moved her into a 44 gallon. I think the red streaks in her case were from stress, or from brighter lighting (I could see her natural veins) in the new tank.

If your fish was not eating, I would guess that it had something else going on.

Maybe it was your water quality? Do you know how your ammonia and nitrite levels were? How long was your tank running?

I am really sorry about your fish.
