He doesn't look his hottest right now but I have plenty of pictures from when he did. He's my only HM boy at the moment even if he is a rosetail

He's like almost a dragon scale, definitely heavy metallic lol. And he's got the full face mask scaling, not a single dark spot on his pretty little head.

oh and the aq salt will help him breath a bit.

I just noticed that his pectoral fin on that side looks dead. like its there but there is no color to it anymore, its kinda a blackish grey color now... I gave him a 100% water change yesterday so it cant be the water (I also treated it the same have I've always been). Poor fella...

No it doesn't look like it. It kinda looks like fin rot but there is not way it could be. I've been keeping his waters pristinely clean. It's completely there and not broken up one bit, it's just lost all of its color and went blackish grey... more black than grey.

Its not. It's just that fin. I've been watching really close since this last development and it hasn't changed yet. Although I have seen movement in that fin again, thank god. It can kinda wiggle, a little. Although now he's getting skinny despite the normal 2 in the morning 2 at night feeding schedule. Normal poops at the moment so I'm not concerned about worms yet.

It also seems like he's regaining a bit of color on his pectoral fin.
