Hi, firstly what are the rips like? Long strips like a ripped sheet? Or actually missing square-ish chunks?

From my understanding you're using a .5g tank.. Is this heated? What decorations do you use?

NO, do not use salt yet.

I have seen maybe that green plastic plant in the tank? Perry had the same "tank" before and...well...Saphira101 had a tank like that also and she told me there was METAL in that tank!!!


So that might lead to DEATH. I suggest you take out all the plants and take a look at them to see if there are any cracks in the plant.

What is the water temperature?

Does the tank have a filter? If so, what type?

Is he by himself in the tank? Or are there other fish?

Can you post a picture of his tail?

Can you post a picture of the tank, including all plants and decorations?

Popcorndeer - I asked you five questions. You didn't answer any of them.
