I really don't do this very often - get a sick fish from the LFS. But this poor VT boy was looking so pathetic I had to get him out. His cup was DISGUSTING. He's in rough shape, especially his eyes. They are clouded over and "puffy" looking, but not popped out completely. I really hope I caught it early so that he can be treated. He also has ammonia burns on his fins, and possible fin rot/biting. His body looks good, not overly thin or anything ... just sad.
Right now he's in a heated sterilite tub with salt. I bought some maracyn just in case it does
turn out to be popeye. As of now, he's looking okay, unclamped and zooming around the tub so he's probably feeling a little better.
I'll get pics ASAP. I've named him Pocket because that's where he was all the time I was riding home on the bus, snug in my pocket :)
