GaspeGirl, that looks like fin rot. 1 tsp of aquarium salt per gallon as long as there's no live snails, plants, or shrimp in his tank. Otherwise, move him to a hospital tank. Warm water around 80 F, as frequent water changes as possible.

Thank you so much everyone for your encouraging words and helpful advice - unfortunately, the disease spread so quickly that by the end of the day my Velvee had passed on ... It's truly a tragic way to go and I hope that the source of this horrid disease can someday be traced . RIP Velvee

Wow- really sorry to hear. Poor little guy.

What a horrible disease, hadn't heard about it in a while. Can't believe breeders are still letting this get into stores.
