This is my daughters fish. She brought him home from college, and I have been trying to figure out how to help him. He eats well and does swim around some. His eyes are clear, and he makes bubble nests. I think he also has fin rot and he is not as bright in color as he use to be.
1st two photos 3 months after she got him.
the following photos is what he looks like today. Please help.
