New wal mart rescue. Need all the help I can get

I saw this guy at wal mart and couldn't resist trying to help him for obvious reasons. Right now I have him in a 1 gallon, a little over half full to QT him and he cant swim very well and I don't want him to have to go very far. Everytime he moves another piece of fin falls off :( He is in water treated with AQ salt and stress coat and the temp is at 79 degrees. Anything else I could be doing to help him? I want him to have a fighting chance even if it seems unlikely

Oh wow. Poor little guy! It sounds to me like you're doing all the right things. But you may want to start a new thread in the Diseases & Emergencies forum. More people might see it there, and be able to suggest other things.

I hope he makes it!

I dont know if theres anything else. You could try bettafix, but that's kinda dangerous.

Maybe you should PM sakura8 and ask her!
