How much of the aq salt per gall you was adding? i added one tea-spoon

How long you was treating him with salt? This is the only thing i've used

Do you have stress coat? Stress coat has Aloe Vera in it and helps with healing. No i'm unsure what that is.

i'm gonna use ur dixie cup idea atm i have his hospital tank set up and i'm heating up the water i'm gonna put him in the dixie cup and float it in there so he can use to that temp i'm trying to make it like the water in his 5 gal tank. This way i can do the 50% water changes at lot easyer. I also did add one tea-spoon of salt to help him out as well.

Ok 1 1/2 gall tank. One tsp not enough. Add 2 tsp/gall next water changes. 2tsp/gall for your 11/2 gall tank is 3tsp. So next time you do 50% water change add 3tsp of the aq salt. Then following day increase dose to 3 tsp per gallon so for your tank (1 1/2 it will be 4.5tsp/gall) Do daily 50% water changes but eventually you need to do full water change . Do full water change every 4 days. And use aquarium salt 3tsp/gall no longer then 12 days.
Try to buy frozen blood worms and good pellets. If you see API stress coat or any other brand you can add it to his tank. But do not add full dose of it as it also water conditioner and you already using Prime. You can ass a few drops of the stress coat.

i plan on it. So far i can see more clear stuff between his fins than i can see black. it doesnt look like much more of his fins have fallen off since thursday which maybe a good thing. What I'm not happy about is the fact his one gal tank even wraped in towels almost fell out of the green last night due to the fact i cant use a heater. SO i'm gonna do what Netupes-mom sugested and put the hosptial tank in the 5 gal tank so he will be warm. I have a 4" terra-cotta pot i can put in the tank and rest the the hospital tank ontop of it. I also think i have clips so i can clip it onto the tanka s well. the biggiest issue i'll haveis i need to put the termomenter in the 5 gal tank and slowly warm it up so he doesn't go into shock.

what is the temperature without the heater? If it 76* it perfect. Even 74-75* is fine.
And you can also buy see through tupperware so it would be easier for you to float in the 5 gall tank.

He's at 70* which is BAD! I got some clamps to clamp the hospital tank inside the 5 gal tank. it sits perfectly on the terra-cotta pot and with the clamps in there the tank won't move much either

I had another question. I'm gonna clamp his hospital tank inside of his 5 gal tank so he cam stay warm. Atm his water temp is at 72* because i can't put a heater in the one gal tank. If i put him in the 5 gal tank (in this hosptal tank) would that

A) affect the cycling of the tank

b)Could the ammoina in the 5 gal tank hurt fishy in the 1 gal tank?
