I'm getting worried about Quicksilver ... he has what looks like a case of bacterial fin rot. I just forget what to treat him with >_<
He's still acting fine and dandy, eating well, being a goof. It's just this darned pin hole in his dorsal. I've been watching the hole since Monday night and it has gotten bigger. Any suggestions on how to treat him?
