How old is your fish (approximately)?
I don't know how old the fish is. I got him only a week and acouple days ago or so?? Maybe less than a year old? Only problems I was aware of were he came with a lil hole in his fins and developed two to three more. Some healed and you can still see 2 medium holes and one tiny hole. He has a round hole on his dorsal fin and two slit-like holes in his tail. They seemed to be healing or not rotting or getting worse. Was considering salting him but decided against it.
Now this morning first thing I notice random bloody red tip on one or two tips of his bottom dorsal fin! Not very big but definitely noticed it. I don't know what it is! He does have a deep red on certain parts of him but he never had any here I'm positive and it's bright blood red! I examined him and the tank then and maybe it's just dust but it looks like little teeny white/gray fuzz on ornament and silk plants. Fungus? I can't get a pic where you can see it, it's like teeny layer of dust on stuff. Didn't notice before. Random red spot on tips of fin? I don't see anything on him. He is black and silver though hard to tell. :( I really am freaked out now I've never seen blood red tips? Is he bleeding, fin rotting, or am I freaking out for nothing and his color changed from black to red (though i have a feeling it's not the last)?? He is acting completely normal and happy active hungry. Just the blood red tip and now white stuff in tank I noticed. I am clueless and veryyyyyy worried now. pleasseeee help!!!
