Watch his tail hopefully it will not get worse if it will then you might need medications. Medications will be last resort. It always better to try salt first especially if it mild .
Thanks, the fin colors are turning lighter in grey and I am seeing very little translucent fin growth in the tattered areas as in growing back to its original shape. I suppose it will be take a while, but I hope it is going the right direction.
Also, the black tips on the Anal fins closest the to body, gill-side, is disappearing, as in the black shrunk from 1mm to 1/2mm in two days. But I am not seeing the translucent growth like that in the caudal fins.
Final AQ salt water change will be on 1/11/13. We'll see how things go. But I notice more rapid changes since I upped the AQ to 10ml per gallon and added the Stress Coat+ as suggested here.
I got the 50W heater and this stabilized the temperature at 80F (+/- 1F), really neat compared to my 7.5W that fluctuates from 74F-82F overnight.
Also, Moses, the Marimo Moss might be helping with this healing process too by taking in the bad stuff for Fred. Still learning A LOT from all the kind generous info-sharing people on this BB.
