Hello, I was on here a while ago with another emergency (which was taken care of), but now I'm back with a different issue and many questions.
#1 Bart seemed to have changed from a light pink when we first got him 2 years ago to a very dark red now. [SEE ATTATCHED PHOTOS]
#2 His tail was once flowy and big, now it's curled in and shorter...fin rot?
#3 We assumed it was fin rot, so we started to do a 75% change of water and still use our water conditioner. But do we need to cut down on the amount of conditioner since we're not using a full gallon of clean water (it says 7 drops to every gallon).
#4 Salt treatment, will this help? and how to properly do it?
#5 Invest in a bigger tank? We have him in a 1 gallon bowl.
#6 Should we go ahead and use medication, or wait and see if we see changes in Bart with the changes we are making (not doing 100% water changes and reducing his feeding amounts)
Please see attatched photos and tell us what you think it is and how we can make Bart better. Thank you again.
