he just died... just like that... came home and... yeah...

and no JBL is the best thing I could get my hands on. I was using a both, aq salt and JBL.

No there was nothing in the tank like I said, just the heater, it's a hospital tank.

The poop was fine.

I leave you guys with a picture of him... during yesterday's water change... perhaps you guys can figure out what happened to him-- meanwhile I'm sterilizing everything he touched.

The fins look like they have been bleeding, possibly from tail biting... Or very possible to be septicaemia though that is usually streaks rather than globs on the end of the tail. His fins also seem to be off in color... Brown in plces, and a lot thinner than they should have been. There is a chance he caught a secondary infection if he previously had fin rot.

yes I said that most of the ich concentrated on his tail so he started biting because it was itchy for him.

When I bought him he didn't have signs of rot, but then again I am unaware what is his medical history beyond a week of his life.

The brown places are the missing scales, which was the reason I posted the thread in the first place. Though he was stressed due to being cupped.

He became thinner as he stopped eating.

Even so, I did 100% water changes and kept the water warm, the medication for ich set out to prevent infection of the wound-- and aq salt should have helped...

I don't recall it right now, but I think there is another external parasite that can look like black under the scales? (Correct me if I am wrong)

What mattered, is that you tried. So don't blame yourself - you did very well with the amount of time.

I'm sorry he ended that way. He looked really cool too like a bald eagle with his yellow mouth and white head.
