Exclamation Rusty isn't so good anymore Please help

Rusty has started to get very pale this morning. He just finished treatment for fin rot and was ok last night but this morning his fins are pale near the body and he's clamping. He is still active and eating just fine but he won't flair and is less social.

Could something have happened that scared him or did you do a water change? I had one that got very pale when I changed his water and moved him downstairs before going on vacation. I hope he'll be ok.

Thank you!
I did do a water change after his 7 day fin rot treatment. I did just get him to flare but he's not too interested. Am I paranoid (well yeah I am after losing several Jessies)? How did your little one do? did he perk back up?

I'm on vacation so I have no idea if Oscar is still alive. I already called my fish sitter once. I don't want her to think I'm paranoid.

LOL oh ok so this was a recent thing. Ok I will keep an eye on him. What can we do to keep them stimulated but not stressed more?

Maybe get him some kind of decoration like a castle or bridge that he can go in and out of.

I think the castle or bridge idea is great! I just got Flair a rock cave yesterday - and I think he has made a game out of it. He'll go inside his cave to rest and then when you walk up to the tank or walk by it he shoots out like he was shot from a canon and gets excited.
