I was concerned about the Beast's coloring changes, but everybody seemed fine last night. This morning, as I checked in with them right before my school bus came, I immediately noticed white cottony growth and what I assume to be fin rot. Knowing there was no way I could squeeze in a WC, I put the correct dosage of AQ salt in and lowered the temperature to 75 F. Honestly, I don't know if Gorbash will still be alive when I come home. He was literally fine yesterday night... It set on so fast.
Is there anyway I can prevent this from spreading to the Beast?
