yes I said that most of the ich concentrated on his tail so he started biting because it was itchy for him.
When I bought him he didn't have signs of rot, but then again I am unaware what is his medical history beyond a week of his life.
The brown places are the missing scales, which was the reason I posted the thread in the first place. Though he was stressed due to being cupped.
He became thinner as he stopped eating.
Even so, I did 100% water changes and kept the water warm, the medication for ich set out to prevent infection of the wound-- and aq salt should have helped...
