Good news! He's eaten now for the first time in a week! If I knew he'd recover this fast, I would have given him a salt bath a LONG time ago. Thanks again OldFishLady!

I think I'm going to find a way to take him on the plane with me to Chicago this weekend. With a close call like this, I am afraid to leave him with my mom to watch for a month.


Also, he has started flaring at his neighbor, Whisper. He wasn't showing off much, but the fact he has the strength to flare his gills is amazing. What else is amazing is that those same gills that were in so much pain yesterday can now be flared. I have had the two of them out of sight of each other with a blind, but since he was showing movement again I wanted to see what he would do. I'm so happy my trooper is pulling through. He's a fighter, that's for sure!

To help increase the heat, I believe you can place the tank on a heating pad set on low.

If I am mistaken, somebody please let me know!

Right now I am fostering a young kitten, so my heater is currently taken.
But, he's almost his old self now. I think he'll be fine without the heater. Thanks :)

Thank you, lol!
He's no longer clamping his fins, so there's another good sign. He's getting through though. He still has ich on his gills, but I think that will go away in a few days.
