Clean water will help. But it's not the only step you should take.

I do appreciate your help, and if he doesn't get to looking better soon, I'll put a little Melafix in his water...
Kanaplex and Maracyn Plus are antibiotics. They will not harm his labyrinth lung. However, the Melafix could.. I have no idea who gave you this mis info but it's wrong.

Those preset heaters tend to overheat and fail.. I really strongly suggest you never ever use a heater without a thermometer, but it's extremely important in something this small.
