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
