Ack, I can't see the pictures. Work must have them blocked.

Sounds like from what the majority have said, he is alright. Just adjusting to the new environment.

If his fins are looking unhealthy AQ salt is usually the best bet, along with 100% daily water changes and a redose. :)

If you are really concerned or something takes a turn for the worst, place a thread in emergency again ^^

I'm sure he will be fine!

Correcty doodle. :)

Treat with Aq.Salt at 1 tsp/gal. Increase water changes to 100% daily. Replace accurate amount of salt following water changes. Add Stress Coat to help repair tissue. If there is little to no improvement within the first 5 days, you can increase the salt dosage gradually to 2tsp/gal but do not continue any salt treatments past 10 days.

If ever in doubt and need help with suspect disease ask, if there isn't anyone on you can always consult:

API Stress Coat is a highly recommended water conditioner by most people on these forums. It has aloe vera which helps fishy form a slimey coat to protect themselves :)

I actually use both Stress Coat and a sepereate Sera water conditioner. But if you just used Stress Coat by itself, it is an excellent conditioner and health booster for fishy ^^
