Alpha has just recently been diagnosed, and treated for fin rot. He was doing fine until Freckles came into his life. Freckles is a new female sharing Alpha's ten gallon tank (divided) and was put into the tank on Sunday. Alpha has been going downhill since then. For one, he still has stress stripes that don't go away. Another thing is that he has a cloudy eye. Also, he has what looks like skin peeling off of his head. His fins are looking dullish too. What could be going on with him? I would be willing to buy Freckles a new tank, and just put her in the 1.5 gallon I have for tonight if that might help Alpha. Alpha gets very stressed over small little things like me putting my hand into his tank to fix a plant or anything like that, but he has been stressed for too long this time. What could this be? The water parameters are fine, and so is the temperature.
Just to let you know, he isn't eating, and hides in a little cave, or floats up at the top. I would appreciate any help, I don't want to let him continue on like this.
