Collect naturally dried and fallen from the tree Oak leaves-about 20 crushed/gallon of premixed treatment water or IAL 1 large crushed/gallon.

Always use dechlorinator with any water used on the fish.

Hard to say what the diagnosis is-it can be a number of things...The best we can do on the internet is a "Best guess" based on the information we are given.

Thanks Oldfishlady. I will mix up a gallon with oak leaves, 3 tsp of epsom salt, and conditioner and will change a portion of water for 10-14 days. I hope he will get better. I will update when more info becomes available.

Really appreciate your help!

This morning I noticed there was fin-rot. Could it be the reaction to the new solution (I changed half of his water with the solution above)? It's not looking good...maybe it's his time :(

Sadly, some of the issues might be age related and not a lot we can do but keep them comfy and do what is right by them if they seem to be suffering.

The treatment water should not cause any problems or fin rot.

I'll continue to change half his bowl with the solution and feeding him small pellets twice a day. But this sucks...anything else I can do to keep "fatty" comfy?
