Most important thing you can do with a rescue fish is give them time to become clean before you start any major treatment.
I was very careful about letting him adjust to the water. I made sure that I slowly transferred clean water into his cup and then the next day slowly changed it out for the salt bath treatment... Poseidon was actually in worse shape when I got him and handled it well... Is there a difference in treatments for crowntails than veiltails maybe? Idk... :/ I wish I could have gotten some decent pics of him before he died... But I was waiting for him to get better.
