I dont understand, though, does he have rot? Or is he biting? Or does he have rot from biting?
He arrived a tail bitter and he had a small about of fin rot from the tail biting. But I started using AQ salt and it cleared it up.

I will add him to his new home! I hope he likes it! :) THank you for your help.

Freshwater fish pee a lot. They are constantly absorbing water through osmosis (fish contains more sodium than the water), and have to rid themselves of it. They don't have urinary bladders, so they are pretty much peeing constantly. Fish pee is one of the two main sources of ammonia that fish excrete in to the water, the other is via respiratory exchange in the gills.

On the other hand, saltwater fish are constantly losing water due to osmosis (water contains more sodium than the fish), and typically excrete urea in a very concentrated form, similar to what birds do (the white part of bird poop is actually pee).

(Ex, seachem flourish, tetra floura pride, API's leaf zone, etc are good, use them right in!)
It's for aquarium use, i checked. Thanks.

They shouldnt, no. It is not healthy for them to, if they are. Scales falling of is a sign of disease or injury.


And that white bird poop/pee thing. Omg, Im going to die of omgness. Ew.
