Question Oh man. D:

Okay, So it all started off with Finrot for everyone, Squirt, Leo, Cosmo, and Gurgle.
Now...
Gurgle has these red marks all over his face, and even bigger marks on his gills. I dont know what could of caused this. It started today. The only changes that i made was that I put in a plastic plant that used to be in my adf tank. and the tank was kinda gross. It might of been that. Also i put in the underground filter that comes with the tank. Idk. I took out the plant, and unplugged the filter.
Anyone know what could cause this.

It sounds kind of like septicemia. The symptoms are red streaks on fins, patchy red discoloration on thhe body, protrusion of scale, rapid breathings and distended abdomen.

What does the distended abdomen look like? Is the protrusion of scales mean like dropsy?or something different...

Does his belly look swollen? The scales would be sticking out like a pinecone.

Ummm.... His belly is somewhat swollen, but not bad, and the scales aren't protrusing. The red marks are still on his face.
