So for about 2 weeks I have been treating a red crown tail for inflamed gills both are unable to close all the way and he spends a lot of time at the surface, I've been using the recomended treatments. I've had him in a heated 1gal bowl (as funds for anything bigger are not available)
Other than chilling at the top and his gills being swollen nothing seems wrong he eats and everything. But there has been no change in the gills.
Could this be a genetics issue or am I doing something wrong other than the small tank?
