Will AQ salt help with that, if that's what it is?

So after close inspection. It looks like the spots are now gone. I'm assuming he rubbed them off? I don't know. It's weird. Maybe he'd just doing better now that he's out of that filthy cup. It was so nasty and it had less than two inches of water in it. It's one of the reasons we picked him.

I went ahead and did a 100% water change still using AQ salt, scrubbed the ornaments and silk plant in his tank and changed his gravel. I'll have to watch him to see if it comes back.

I bet the AQ salt killed the parasite or something.

I hope so. Now if we can get his fins back in shape, he'll be doing all right.

I don't think AQ salt will help with that. Just do 100% water changes everyday and keep the water clean.
