Hi Anna! Thanks so much for your reply!!!
The marks are centered on mmy ADF's joints -- the less fatty/muscle tissue, the more white there is. Also on her back, where the litltle ridge-like archs are on either side of the spine. They seem fluish with the skin though from what I can tell there may be some thickening where it appears.
Thanks so much for your reply, Anna. I will see if someone local can help us; but it's reassuring to know that I am helping her to some extent. She seems pretty content right now. I love to see her gobble up every meal!
I hope I can do better for my mating pair who are in the big filtered tank and occasionally "hooking up." So far, so good... the only issue I have is that the Ph is a little high in both tanks... 7.5 or so. I will work on adjusting it back down to a more neutral number and just focus on water quality and food quantity.
Bitsy is doing well, thanks Anna! She's eating with gusto, hiding creatively, and her scrawny little legs seem to be filling out a bit. I feel hopeful about her prospects. :)
Now if I could figure out if the other two are making eggs or not... I might submit a question about that...
