if it looks fungus-esque, it's most likely bacterial.

aq salt will help him here. And his gonopodium (his manly part) will grow back as long as the entire fin isn't destroyed above the rays. It may be a while before he can breed though.

Like this http://badmanstropicalfish.com/fish_...known1_me.html

Could I use table salt? Because I can't get to RLF store there all to far away and I need a ride. The closest date I cold get to walmart, is tomorrow, but I know they don't have salt.

No, table salt is different.

You can call walmart and ask, or check their stock on their website (calling would be easier)

Ok. thanks for tell me. I know they don't carry the salt, not in the store any way. I will check online.

I heard some people giving advice for Unscented Epson salt but I don't think that is a good idea either.

Also would giving the tank a 100 percent water change, help with the Viral infection if he has one?

NVM they have aquarium salt... lol... Now I know ware to find it too. Since they didn't even have it with the fish... Go figure.

Yes! see help was found! :)
The AQ salt is a good idea... and i do think the water change will be very helpful to keep the bacterial levels down.

Thank you and all the other posters you have been a good help.

My only problems fishy wise, was ich, or things that can be cured with quick cure.

So I probably will be asking tomorrow on salt treatments. Super glad I have a quarantine tank. because my catfish wouldn't survive the salt lol.

So salt treatment and 100 percent water change ( not in that order)

Ok, so walmart had salt. YAY jungle brand, directions were very clear.

To day I did 99.99 percent water change, and got rid of the gravel and anything else in that ten gallon tank.

I was able to get a good look at him to day. Its gotten a bit worse and spread.

However the moment he hit the clean salted water he perked up. quite a bit, going see mommy I can swim.

But any way, its definitely an Ulcer. white rimmed scales, red soar spot, shedding slime coat.

He doesn't want to use his tail all that much, I don't blame him since its at the base of his tail.

He didn't eat anything this morning, but since he perked up I think I might try again, with his favorite flakes. Later on.

I heard that with Ulcers shedding the old slime coat is a good thing. so feeling a bit optimistic.

However I think he will be forever steril. Since the ulcer has completely infected his Gonopodium, turned it white. But thats ok, I still love my little fishy. But If I want to breed( which I do) I am going to half to get a new boy.

If he makes it, I am going to call him Old Red, or Lucky Red lol

Epsom salt is actually a great option to treat fish with, for future reference :) the big thing you have to watch with salt for fish treatment is that you want NON iodized salt. epsom isn't as strong as aquarium salt which is why its recommended for some treatments instead.

glad you found stufc that'll work though!!
