Unhappy Eros isn't doing so well.

I think he got really stressed when I moved him home from the dorm. When I got here he had a small nip in his fin. I put him in my cycled 10 gallon and he proceeded to develop fin rot. I moved him to a 2 gallon tank with IAL and the fin rot seemed to get worse so I switched him to aquarium salt. I was planning on doing regular water changes but now I'm thinking I need to do daily. He seems to be eating and his water is 78-80* but he just doesn't look good. I'm going to try daily water changes even though I think that will stress him out more.

His top lobe is almost completely gone from fin rot (he's an HM DBT). In addition to that he looks really pale and getting thin. If a week of water changes doesn't work I guess I can try JFC. I'm also going to add garlic to his diet.

I really hope he gets better. I was hoping to breed him once I found a nice turquoise girl.
