Nope, not velvet. :) It's not gold really, unless the gold isn't showing up in the pics. It's mostly slime coat.

What explains the clamping of his fins. Is the bacterial infection exterior or could it be internal? I have never fed him anything raw, just flakes. He has not eaten for four days.

The clamping is probably from the stress of not feeling well so it could be from both internal and external. If he hasn't eaten for four days, that's a little problematic. :( Has he responded at all to the Maracyn Plus?

If you do suspect he has an internal infection as well, then we'll need to treat that after we treat his topical infection.

Kind of, he's swimming a bit more. It's only been two days out of six days of treatment so well see. :( well I don't think he sees the food or has interest. But he tryed attacking one yesterday but didn't and went up for air so I took it out

Good news! He ate a full meal today! But he still keeps his physical appearance. I'm taking him to an experienced pet store to see if they can diagnose him...

Okay so I strongly believe it is ich now, as the lady at the pet store said. I'm treating with nox-ich. Is that a good medication?

I think it is about as good as any other ich med. I've only used Kordon Rid Ich. Although, if you prefer a natural method of treating ich, 3 tsps of aquarium salt per gallon and raising the heat to 86 F will do the job too.

Haha this is a fungus from to much spoiled food. But don't worry!!! I can help you. First get him into a heated tank and raise the temp to about 80-82. Second, get som aquarium salt and put some in your tank (5 tea spoons per gallon). It looks pretty mild so it should work. BUT! If it does get worse for some odd reason then go to the petsmart, petco etc. some type of fish store and pick up some fungus meds.
