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...
