Hey all. So my husband and I recently got a little double half moon male but we didn't realize he had velvet we just thought he was stressed at the store. We have been trying to cure him for about a week and a half now by using methylane blue and a little bit of salt and changing every day. The gold seems to be coming off but he is still refusing to eat. He was active and ate a little when we first got him but now he refuses food and he has started floating on his side today. I put some garlic on a blood worm but he won't eat it so far. Does anyone have anything else I can do?
