Thanks, Moonshadow! I PM'd OFL and she is giving me some advice for treating him. I caught the little bugger biting today, so now I'm sure that's what this is. I just have to figure out how to keep his QT tank warm and then I'm going to start the salt treatment for him.

Tragic, though... he used to have such GORGEOUS fins... -sigh-

Just wanted to give an update on Zen. He's being treated with Aq. salt in a QT tank that is floating in his 5 gallon. He's a very angry fishy for being taken out of his big home and put into this 1/2 gallon tank for treatment, but otherwise he is adjusting well and seems to be reacting well to the salt. Hopefully his tattered fins will start to heal soon! He looks pretty pathetic right now... chewed off probably an inch of tail fin length and lost a little more from the subsequent fin rot episode. He is still eating well and very active, so I think he'll pull through this just fine. :)
