Okay, Little Leaf. Wrap a towel around his tank so it stays dark and warm as possible. If you think you can get a pic, try to. If not, that's okay, I understand if your camera is broken. Can you describe his behavior for me?

EDIT: Can you also describe the color of this discoloration? Necrosis is steel/graphite gray or black.

:/ I'm so sorry LL. Could you get IAL or antibiotics for fish? I'm really scared, your parents won't allow a heater...

Petco is open, I think Petsmart is, too. It's 8:13pm for me. EST time.
Do your parents know about this?

I'm sorry, Little Leaf. Judging by what you're describing, he probably won't make it through the night. :( All you can do is keep him as comfortable as possible. Did you wrap a towel around his tank? That will help. Then just leave him alone and only check on him every half hour. If you check on him too much, he'll get stressed.

NO!!!

I nearly cried at this thread. it scared me a little, too.

Is there any TINY chances he could make it or is it over?


EDIT: yes, I put a red bath towel around him...
