my black and orange fish, Klaus has something wrong with him, but I don't know what. His fins look like either fin rot or tail biting
and on his black body he has white splotches
. I don't think it's ick because as I recall, that looks more like salt.
But here's the problem: I just had 3 fish die this week because of a contaminated net after doing water changes. I took him out also with the same net and I'm afraid of him suffering the same fate as my other three. *I threw the net out today and bought 2 new ones, one for live fish, one for... not.*
I feel so terrible that I didn't even notice the issue with the net, either. But I really need to know what's wrong with klaus and how to fix it... fast
Also, he lives in a 2.5 gallon tank by himself and has some [fake] plants that I was advised would not rip his fins.
