O.k here is what has been happening. I know this is going to be long just hang in there! So about a month a ago or 2/3 weeks he started hanging by the bottom of the tank so i thought, maybe i should feed him, i would but the end of a CLEAN paintbrush never used in his tank to get his attention and feed him bloodworms. I was told that's not a real meal so i got him different pellets. Right? He hasn't eaten for a long time. But when he was in his hospital tank he had string poop, thin, kinda clear but able to see. Right now is i hit the table like as in putting a phone down he flips around hitting stuff then going back down to the bottom of the tank. When i had him in a very warm temp. he was very well. But this heater isn't the best, like at all which i'm getting a new one, very very soon. He has rips in his tail and holes but i wouldn't say it's from his plants, they are very very dull. On top of his head it's lighter but not missing scales or anything, maybe loosing color? He is a bright red fish. His eyes are HUGE and foggy like. I don't know what this is called. Or how to figure this out, i don't want to "put him down" if it is a simple fix, maybe i have to spend money but hey, he's my baby!! Please someone help my best friend.
It's a lot of pictures but, i need answers.
