OH! And seeing as how it *is at least some sort of skin thing, I actually recommend you dont, at all, leave that light on him. It'll just promote growth D;
I used this medicine for whatever fungual thing Alle had, it can be bought at Walmart on the cheap (Like 3 bucks!) and comes in drops/gal. I had the same size tank you do, so its like a single drop :B

Also, try these conditioners, theyre cheap and the first one is soooooo easy to measure and use! (Just drops!!!)

And if youre looking for a heater, I bought this badboy and loooveee it ~.~ <3 (again, same sized tankish)... Not to expensive and sold in lots of places!

Thanks for all the tips. I'll have to buy some water conditioner. In the mean time I will give him a dose of Rid Ich to fight the protozoan, flagellate and fungal diseases. I will also watch his artificial light intake. I added a decoration to give him a sense of security even though he is not bashful haha. Here is a pic of the new decor.

Just like all the others said, you must have water conditioner! Also even if the light keeps the tank warm, the temperature fluctuations can be very stressful so a heater is usually a must to keep things stable. I also agree with the others about more water changes, in something that small probably daily water changes. Waiting a week will cause the ammonia to build up dangerously.
