Nami seems to have a little white cottony patch on his top fin. It's only a little patch about the size of a pen tip and he seems to be acting normally. Just wondering if I should be doing the 100% water change + 1 tsp/gal Aquarium Salt every day for 10 days or if I should just start using the API Fungus Cure. If I go with the Aquarium Salt, how quickly should I start seeing results? I don't know if I can get a picture to post because we don't have internet at home right now as we just moved into a new house. Thank you!
