He does NOT look like that picture. I don't even know anymore. I've seen so many different pictures, and so many yes's and no's I'm totally confused.
The temperature is right on whenever I change water, so there is no temperature change. I was putting some old water in, but I've been told to do 100% changes, so no more old water.
I'm just sticking to the salt and heat treatment with daily changes. Should help him if he does have velvet, shouldn't hurt him if he doesn't have it. Do you recommend anything else for lethargy other than the above?
The heater is BARELY submerged past the minimum water level, but it is deep enough. That's why I need the cover because I have to have the water so high. Cover is just a plastic sheet open around the heater and thermometer, plenty of room for air.
Water was at 82 degrees this morning. Heater works like a charm.
Hes still very lethargic. And he's clamping his top fin now. Tried to eat a crisp after it just happened to float by his head when he came up for air, spit it back out. Didn't try to eat any of the other food. Is just hanging out at the bottom, swimming around a little, coming up for air, then back to the bottom.
