Not fuzzy or cottony at all, just his normal scales but lacking colour...
Ok, looks like I am off to the pet store first thing tomorrow to look for some of that salt.... I assume PetSmart will have it - hopefully because it is about my only option here and ordering online usually takes forever because most things come from the US and take a while to get to Canada.
I feel terrible that I caused this by not changing the water
I honestly had no idea. The petsmart employee said she had the same tank that I was in buying & she'd had it for 4 months so far and hadn't had to do anything more than change the filter...I assumed she knew what she was talking about. My mistake & lesson learned!
I was under the impression that he was marbling and not actually sick or in danger, so I went ahead and put him into the fresh/clean home tank again. I hope I didn't cause more problems.
No worries about hijacking, I know we are all here trying to help out sick animals!
