In the meantime, 3 tsps of epsom salts per gallon, Wolfie. :)

He's pretty much the same.. his pineconing might be a little better.. I'm going to change his water/re-dose with general cure tomorrow morning.. so hopefully I'll see a difference.

is it safe to do a few courses of general cure? It says on the box that two treatments should be enough.. but I'm not seeing any improvement yet..

It should be safe, yes but I don't think I'd go over 4 courses.

He's no better today :( He might even be worse.. It's heartbreaking to see his little eyes looking at me.. He's such a fighter, I mean I'm not sure what else could keep him going on like this.
He must be in so much pain :( I've been adding Kordon's fish protector this entire time, so I hope that helps a little. He doesn't look anything like the shimmery pink he used to be with his scales up like this.

:( I don't know if this will be of any comfort to you but supposedly fish don't "feel" pain in the same way mammals do. He might be in discomfort but I don't think he is in pain.

I do remember reading that on Reddit... I still feel so bad for him :(

Is there anything else I could be doing?
